Valpo Mini Marathon Has French Connection
Patrick Merle, a native of France who resides in Plymouth, IN, won the Valpo Mini Marathon, winning the hilly 13.1-miler on Saturday in 1:18:19.3. Merle, who is coached by Christine Palmquist of Geneva, is training for Ironman Louisville, and told local reporters he had no intention of winning. But he did, passing the last two runners with just a block or two to go. At this point, I have no other results from this race.
