Gotta be quick. Deena Kastor played it coy and turned it on late to win in 2:29:35 at the women's trials in Boston. Early front-runner Magdelana Lewy-Boulet was second in 2:30:18 and Blake Russell third in 2:32:40. Our local angle? Tera Moody, a former star at St. Charles HS and winner of the 2005 Community Bank of Elmhurst 4 on the 4th among other things, finished fifth in 2:33:54, a second behind Zoila Gomez. Tera lives in Boulder, Colo. now, but we'll claim her anyway. Heading to Wisconsin after a short run. Will try to blog from there.
846 runners from Illinois will be running Boston tomorrow in great conditions. Cool? You bet.
