Charlottesville Women’s 4-miler

Nicole, Louise, Vicky, and Ann raced for Ragged Mountain Racing at Charlottesville’s 2010 Women’s 4-miler on September 4th.  Nicole and Louise made things interesting, finishing within a second of each other.  For the “play-by-play”, see Mark’s Daily Progress article. “Someone yelled out at me at the Hunt Country store that I had a comfortable lead, so I thought I was OK,” said Nicole. “I let my guard down as I raced to the finish line and all of a sudden there was Louise passing me. For a brief second I was stunned. Thank goodness, I had something left to catch her back. I learned my lesson to always race through the finish. Hats off to Louise for her great race as she pushed me to the most amazing finish of any race I’ve ever competed in.”  The RMR ladies finished 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 7th for the team win.

Alexis Evelyn Thiele, born August 1st, has enjoyed meeting her RMR family.  Shannon, Ann, and Louise all visited Alex in her first days of life.  She looks up to the RMR ladies, and hopes to be one some day.  Now, she settles for “mascot” status.  Alex already has her first pair of running shoes – NB 990’s in gray (her dad’s old favorite) and she is “running” around town in the BOB stroller.  Alex won’t be racing in 2010, but has her long term sights set on Brazil 2016.
