Breaking the 19 minute barrier for the first time, and finished 7th female overall.  Carine Rossouw also toed the line again after running Race for the Cure the day earlier, 14th overall and finished at 19:57.  Carine’s daughter Lene  age 8, is following in her footsteps, as she won the kid’s mile in just under 8 minutes! Her son JD also ran in the kid’s mile.  All the Runnababez placed over-all, or in their age-groups and brought home the prize of a McArthur’s Apple Pie!
