@Regranned from @the_running_statistician - RUTI AGA OF ETHIOPIA 🇪🇹 TAKES WOMENS VICTORY IN ONE OF THE DEEPEST HALF MARATHONS EVER
On Sunday morning, at the Aramco Houston Half Marathon in the U.S., several of the worlds best half marathoners came together. The end result was something not before witnessed in the history of the event. A record 7 women clocked under 67:30 for the distance on Houston’s pancake flat course, with Ruti Aga, last fall’s Berlin Marathon runner-up, taking the title in 66:39 only 2 days before her 24th birthday. The time marked the 2nd best ever recorded in the U.S. after Mary Wacera’s (who finished 3rd) 66:29 in the 2016 edition. Three women followed her under the 67-minute barrier, spread by just 11 seconds in a very tight finish. American Molly Huddle ran three new national records at distances of 10 miles (50:52), 20-K (63:48), and the Half (67:25) en route to finishing in 7th, just barely behind the two quickest women in the field.

Warning: long post - This is me (real life). I don’t filter, I don’t take 30 pics to get the right one. This is my world. Ups, downs, wins, losses, and everything in between. If you follow me, you follow a truly broken person, and I’m proud of that. I’ve put on 35 lbs since last January, currently struggling to get back into a rhythm of feeling good about myself, but if you’ve gained weight, you know the vicious cycle I’m currently in. I know what to do, I just choose not to. Story of my life. I again see myself as that fat awkward kid in middle school and high school that didn’t really fit in any where. The butt of jokes, left out if parties, etc..... not sure if I’m trying to get back in shape for myself or for the attention of others..... I need approval. I am a words of affirmation person, and that is my downfall. Christ should be the only approval I need, but man I’m struggling. I want to be liked, I want to be needed, I want to feel special, I want 50,000 followers, because that means I made it right??????? I want a life where I live for Christ, my family, and myself. Enough rambling. Love to all of you who read all of that.
“As the race went on I felt more and more confident that I was going to win. When I made my move with about 3 km to go I felt that the field couldn’t go with me, but I wasn’t sure of victory until I entered the final 100 m. I thought of the type of athletes that I just beat and the 10 years of hard training it had taken me to get to this level. My next goal is to win my debut marathon in Lake Biwa on 4th of March - hopefully with a course record that Wilson Kipsang holds at 2:06:13.” - @jake_robertson_htbz about his victory in the Houston Half marathon last weekend. He finished the race in 60:01 and beat Guys Adola (2nd in Berlin marathon 2017). We can barely wait for his marathon debut in Japan this spring. #maurten#houhalf

Seven of our Upper School students completed the Aramco Houston Half Marathon. The group, led by faculty member Woojin Kim, trained weekly during the fall semester despite Hurricane Harvey. They were excited to show off their finisher shirts and medals!
I'm ready for the Sunday's Houston Half-Marathon. Are you? Stop by and see KT Tape at the race expo. They have some great new products like blister prevention tape and blister treatment patch 👣. #finishstronger#houhalf (📸Kurt)
