Fall racing season is now underway!  Jackie Pirtle-Hall kicked it off with running the Akron Marathon on Saturday.  She ran 2:48:33 for 2nd place overall, 1st American.  Jackie stated, “This is the hilliest course I’ve ever run!” She looks forward to building towards another great race soon!

Meanwhile in Alton, IL Lisa Cary raced the Miles for Meso 5k.  She placed 3rd Overall, and was first American on the hilly cobblestone course running 18:12.  She is looking forward to being race ready for a fall half marathon in the next month!  Fellow Runnababez friend Shawn O’neal also raced the 5k and placed 5th overall among men!

The Runnababez racing schedule over the next months will be a busy one!

It has been kind of quiet on the racing front for the Runnababez over the last couple months, they all have been putting in the miles in training.  However, last weekend a few Runnababez broke out and did a few local races.  Lisa & Amy participated in the United Way 10k.  Lisa placed 1st female overall, 2nd including men with 37:27.  Amy took 3rd female overall running a 41:01.
