Congratulations to Vanessa Smith who just ran her first road race. After being home sick from work for two days she made herself race (that's the kind of person she is) and finished the Santa Shuffle 5k in about 23 minutes (no official time available).
Vanessa came into training with me while nursing an overuse injury. It was necessary that she radically change her training routine. She met the challenge and was still able to pull off a great debut race. She is one to always dig deep during our training sessions together and I look forward to her meeting her future challenges.
