Lot's of Happy Mom's????

May 9th at the Don't Fence Me In Trail Races in Helena (to Benefit the Prickly Pear Land Trust).

Kiefer Hahn and Michele Bazanella take the 30K titles in 2:09.41 & 2:38.47 respectively. 4th and 6th overall went to the top 2 masters runners. Kyle Strode continues his breakout Master's season with a 2:20:46. Scott Gaiser continues to run solid and hit 2:26:04.

In the 12K, Nicole Hunt showed that she was no the worse for wear after her Bloomsday effort by taking a commanding victory in 57:16. Thomas Jodoin had another strong race by getting a 3 minute victory over Zack Strong (48:08 to 41:15). Greg Wirth rounded out the top 3 with a 54:14 effort.

On the same day - the extravaganza known as the Montana Women's Run took place in Billings. A new record turnout occurred with almost 7,000 women celebrating healthy lifestyles.

The 2-mile was dominated by Master's, as over 40 runners took the top 3 positons. 4-time Oly Trials Marathon competitor Karen Sanford Gall (48) took the win @ 12:42. She was followed by Kathie Perrins (42) @ 13:19 and Laura Esp (46) at 13:39. Old Chicks Rule!!!!!

The 5-mile proved to be an easy victory for Sarah Graves. Having finished 32nd at Boston only 3 weeks ago, she had a solid run of 31:07. Billings Runners Eryn Caton and Jen Reiter finished out the top 3 (32:08 & 32:35 respectively). Top master in the 5-Mile was Cathy McKenzie (42) of Powell, WY in 33:52.

The Muddy Buzzard.
