Kerstin's First 1/2 Marathon

A BIG congratulations to Kerstin Jones on a great finishing time of 2:17:35 in Sundays Rock and Roll Marathon in Pheonix Az. Kerstin - you ROCK! You were so fast that you got past the 3 of us tht were on the look-out for you! With an average pace of 10:30 for your very first 1/2 marathon you are fast on the heals of husband Matt. Matt played race "Sherpa" and did an outstanding job of it, sending Kerstin off at the start and then racing over to the finish to park and see her cross the finish line. We still havent quite figured out how Kerstin managed to slip past Matt, Sherry and me since we were all on the look-out for her at different points in the race but she did!
Its a coach's dreamm to hear your athlete debrief after the race and say they did exactly what they had practiced in training! Kerstin has a mind like a steel trap and once she sets her sights on a goal there is no stopping her! Look for an exciting race year from this athlete!
