When I was at the Sourwood 5k in Black Mountain last month I was chatting with my friend and local runner Peggy Glanz and she told me that she was running the Tjejmilen 10k in Stockholm, Sweden in September. She has done this race before and was looking forward to doing it again.
FROM THE RACE WEBSITE
Tjejmilen is Sweden’s largest sports event for women. The 31st edition of Tjejmilen, which takes place on Saturday 6 September, has a total of 33,087 participants.
CONGRATULATIONS TO PEGGY GLANZ
In an e-mail that Peggy sent to several other local runners Peggy reported that the conditions were hot and challenging, making it tougher than in the past. I looked at the results and Peggy finished 16,055 out of more than 33,000 participants! Congratulation Peggy.
