Mel is our little sister. I say “our” because Mel’s been my little sister too for a long time now. She played D1 soccer at PC for 4 years and was on board pretty immediately when we brought the idea to her! Like I said, Mel & I decided to do Hal Higdon’s training program to train for this race. She’s been way more faithful to complete the required weekly runs than I have (running 2-4x / week in addition to the long run on the weekend). She’ll be running in the 3rd slot.
3. 9.269. 4.54
You’ll notice that Mel has a longer break between her 2nd run (number 9) and third run (number 17). This was done in order to give everyone on the team a more similar total than it would’ve been if we left it.
Me, Brock & Mel after the Reedy River 10K (:
