Run SMART client Jamesina Simpson just chillin with Grizz after her half marathon victory at the 2010 Grizzly Half Marathon in Choteau, MT. Jamesina won in 1:29:21 (6:49 per mile) and beat the next female finisher by almost 6 minutes (full results). The most significant part of Jamesina’s race, besides getting to pose with a grizzly bear afterwards, was that she ran about the same time she did at the Rock ‘N Roll Phoenix Half Marathon earlier this year. Not bad considering she ran all by her lonesome in this race on a much hillier course (most of it gravel) and at 4,000 feet!
Jamesina works with Run SMART coach Vince Sherry.
