One Last Steeple

17 Jun

Runnababe Lisa Cary doesn’t know whether she’s coming or going.  She’s spent more time on the road than at home over the last few weeks.  After a quick trip to Cali for Runnababe Anielia’s wedding (along with a canceled steeple in Chula Vista), Lisa had barely a 24 hour turnaround before hitting the road again.  This final steeple of the season took her to the American Milers Club High Performance series in Indianapolis.  The Indiana Invaders put together an awesome distance series each June and we were fortunate enough to grab a slot in their loaded steeple field.  Despite being road weary from the weekend’s travel and events, Lisa lined up with an international field ready to roll again.  Coming back to the event after a 3 year layoff, Lisa saw dramatic improvement each time out.  With another week of learning to deal with the barriers, Lisa has continued to gain confidence as the season developed.  Her 4th steeple of the season produced her 4th PR, finishing the year with a new best of 10:35.48.  Her marked improvement throughout the past month or so, along with an over 35 second improvement from her college PR, gives her plenty of options for events to attack next season.
