Asheville’s Karen Chavez, avid runner who keeps us up to date on the local running scene on behalf of the Asheville Citizen-Times, completed the San Diego Rock & Roll Marathon on June 6, 2010 (her birthday) in an impressive time of 4:05:14 (that’s a 9:22 pace folks). Let’s give a big shout out to Karen who was 1,991 out of 10,625 overall finishers, 592 out of 5,505 females and 64 out of 609 in her age group. Great job Karen!
And while we’re at it, I noticed several other local runners ran the race. Another shout out to Spencer Butler, Justin Grossman, Scott Lebensburger and Trent Duncan!
