Soldier Field 10 Mile - May 29, 2010

Chicago was blessed with beautiful weather as Memorial Day weekend kicked off with the Soldier Field 10 Mile, presented by adidas and Fleet Feet Sports Chicago. Tera Moody, returning from several months off to rehab some nagging injuries, ran the race as a hard tempo workout and was all smiles with a second place 57:42 (1st was Kate McGregor, winner of the 2010 USA 15K Championships.)

Christina Overbeck had planned to run the race as a workout but the sunshine and excitement about the day (and a new fiancee) compelled her to race instead. She ran a respectable 1:03:05, placing 8th amongst very tough competition.

Beth Chenoweth chose to forgo racing to pace her Nike/Fleet Feet Elite Racing teammate Beth Lakier to a 1:10:57 PR. These are very competitive ladies but Beth C. is an example of how supportive these women are of each other and truly exemplifies the meaning of teamwork. As Tera told me, fast competition makes her work harder, resulting in faster times!
