Jodi Asmus and Kelly Nash raced their first half and both in 2 hours. Kim Rodgers PR'd by 8 minutes from her last half marathon and Nikki Kuretich ran a 2:02 with Cori Bernosky right behind her a few seconds. Heidi Brashear who has been in "retirement" came out of it briefly to run a 2:05. Jennifer Litvinoff PR'd with 2:10. She's one to watch as she gets stronger both mentally and physically each race. Christina Peace ran on her injured foot with a 2:17 and a few seconds later was was Wendy Rawson with 2:17 and some change. I (e) ran with cement legs after doing the Summit Challenge the Friday before, so I was happy to get in at 2:19. Shortly thereafter Emilie Speciale finished in 2:20. She's been running on an injured toe. Renee Ureel finished 14 minutes faster than her last half (PF Chang's) proving that getting older doesn't mean getting slower. Vicki Heggen fast walked and beat a lot of runners to the finish (15/mile pace!). Irene Mayberry did her first half marathon following in Vicki's footsteps and fast walked it out at a 16/mile pace.

Overall it was a great day and I'm so proud of all the "Chicks" for getting to the start and doing so well. I always feel extremely proud to be in the midst of these Super Women!
