I normally detest reading news articles about politicians, but when I heard about this...it peaked my curiosity. I have to say that I'm pretty darn impressed with her 1:46:10 finishing time. That's like an 8min/mile pace. She finished 2nd in her age group (don't know how many were registered in her AG). I knew she was an avid runner, but I didn't realize that she was that fast. I've never even come close to running 13.1 miles, but I can guarantee that if I did...it would be at around an 11 min/mile pace....IF THAT. Good for her for being fit enough to run that pace.

There's a local marathon near me whose pace groups are based on celebrity finish times: grandrapidsmarathon.com/pace-teams/ . One of these years I will do this race.

She probably visualized herself chasing some kind of big game animal down the street.
