Gabe Jennings in 3rd. Interesting choice for a 1/2 marathon.
you're right, from the article linked on the front page, she's run

The women's winner was Heidi Westerling, I want to say her last month has been a Half, marathon, half, half, that is crazy!
That guy ran the hilly 2:40 a week ago, and a flat 2:38 at Bay State 2 weeks before that. He got in his month with 65.5 miles of racing like Westerling, only with a weekend off in there.
I wouldn't put too much stock in the 6th place guy's performance, btw. I caught him around mile 7 and we ran together; I made a hard surge, and when I put some distance on him, I think he figured he was out of the money (top 5) and didn't mount much of an effort to catch me. And I'm sure he was leg tired from running a hilly 2:40 just 2 weeks ago. (As for me, I stopped caring once I saw that he had, too!)
