Keely Eckberg smashed her sub-3 goal this morning at the Philadelphia Marathon running 2:56:18, a 5 minute PR. Keely executed a strong, smart race nailing even splits en route to a 16th place finish among women. Keely's run is all the more impressive considering conditions were less than ideal with strong winds, and she's battled a cranky Achille's the last few weeks. Keely revealed her secret to success to be chowing down on eight servings of rice on marathon eve, but this blogger thinks Keely's immense dedication and unfailingly positive attitude were strong contributing factors as well.

On Saturday, Elena Barham made a very strong half marathon debut in Philadelphia, placing 11th in 1:21:14. This was Elena's first race over 10k and only her third road race. Look for Elena to continue to roll at clubsclubsclubs and on the roads for years to come.
