A couple of firsts in the running community...

The 2012 Houston Marathon will be the site of the Men's and Women's Olympic Marathon Qualifier race for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. This is the first time that the men's and women's qualifying race has been held at the same time... Personally, i think it's a good move!

Berhane Adere ran the fatest half-marathon ever on US soil (or asphalt). She crossed the finish line in 1:07:52 ... 1 second faster than Deena Kastor's record which had been standing for 5 years! Congratulations Berhane!!!
