Since some of us will be watching from our computers or homes, I figured I would start a thread where we can discuss the race as it unfolds...You're welcome Smile

I am very surprised with the slow pace at the start of the women's race. Especially with the great weather...

I have no idea who this woman in the lead is, but that form and stride looks terribly inefficient. No way she holds on for the win.

She is still holding on pretty well...hard to believe, huh?

Her husband died last year, so maybe she has some motivation.

Looks like we're missing Michele. She went through 5K at 28:17, just under 4:00 pace, which is I think exactly what her plan was. She should hit 10K in about 9-10 minutes.

Michele and Kath were a second off each other and Vivian was 12 seconds ahead of Kath.
