Dec 2 - Some running notes of interest: An American woman, Kami Semick of Bend, Oregon, ran 3:29:47 to win the women's world 50K championship in Gibraltar recently. She also won the world 100K championship in Belgium earlier this year.
Michael Wardian of Arlington, Va., (a Michigan State grad) was 3rd in the men's 50K in 3:00:56, less than 3 minutes behind the winner. Wardian also ran 2:34:37 in Tulsa last week to break the world record for the marathon . . . while pushing a baby stroller with baby. He was second behind Zac Freudenberg, who ran 2:32:10, also while pushing a stroller with child. (thanks to Dick Lipsey)
