Leading Ladies Marathon/Half-Marathon – Spearfish South Dakota Sports Photography

  • by

You have to be a bit intense to drive 400 miles to go running. We went out to the Black Hills last weekend for the Leading Ladies Marathon/Half-Marathon. The course was almost all downhill in Spearfish Canyon. Running downhill sounds great but in practice, it’s really hard on the knees.

ElizaBeth crossed the line in 2:27:44 in the half-marathon. Kjersten Welch crossed finished the full marathon in third place.

Kjersten’s mom, Maxine Swanson, finished first in her age group in the half. ElizaBeth and Kjersten were high school classmates.
