17_Hall_Tuliamuk.jpgALBANY, NY— The 39th running of the Freihofer's Run for Women 5K, held on the streets of New York’s capital city this morning, featured 3,268 runners, overcast skies and a blazingly fast finish from Sara Hall, 34, from Redding, Calif. Hall came into the race as a marginal second favorite to Aliphine Tuliamuk, 28, originally from Kenya, but these days a U.S. citizen residing in Santa Fe, N.M. After 3.1 miles of racing that was, by turns, aggressive and tactical, Hall proved to be the woman with the wheels, blasting past Tuliamuk with just 25 meters remaining, crossing the finish line two seconds up in a time of 15:49 and taking the first-place prize of $10,000.

By Scott Ludwig

It started out almost as a joke. ‘The Darkside’ as we called ourselves in the mid-1990’s when Al Barker, Valerie Howard and I started running weekly 20-milers so we would be ‘marathon ready’ year round. While all of the other runners in town were eating pancakes or getting ready for church after their six or eight mile Sunday morning runs, the three of us were still on the trails doing what we liked to do best.
