LIVE! Sheri Crushes First 15K

CHICAGO -- This just in...Hallster and her ChampionChip timing device have just flown past the 15K mark. Here's our official clock time so far:

Sheri Hall | Bib # 16266 | Plymouth, MI - USA | Age 30 | F
START 5K 10K 15K 20K HALF 25K 30K 35K 40K FINISH
0:06:48 0:30:30 1:00:00 1:29:20

The BlackBerry update says this is a 9:35 pace with a predicted 4:11ish finish time. Going against last year's result, this would put her in the top quarter of her age group and all females, and the top third-ish of all runners.

Like Becky Marshall used to say, "Run like your ass is on fire!"

::::::HOLD THE PHONE::::::
We have late breaking news from Chicago...Craig Schmidt may dammm well be running this thing, too! RF was able to obtain training logs from as late as June showing Schmidty running 70 miles per week and wanting to keep up this effort for "three more months".

RF was also able to obtain this report from the official LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon page:

Craig H Schmidt | Bib # 3687 | Chicago, IL - USA | Age 33 | M
START 5K 10K 15K 20K HALF 25K 30K 35K 40K FINISH
0:03:34 0:22:54 0:44:18 1:06:34 1:35:06 1:40:06
