Blast from the Past
Ann Schaefers-Coles surfaced Saturday at the Streamwood Stride 5K, winning the women's overall title in 20:50.3. Ann, if you didn't know, was one of the top female runners in Chicago before having a family in recent years. Among other things, she ran in the U.S. women's Olympic marathon Trials twice, placing 27th in 1996 (2:41:05)and 6th in 2000 (2:38:47). Is this the start of a comeback?? Whatever's in store, good luck to Ann!
