Captain Hinckfuss caps breakout season with marathon PB

Checking out the marathon course pre-race

Congratulations to OXAC Women’s Captain Sue Hinckfuss for her PB (3:17:11) in the Berlin Marathon.  Sue’s marathon comes on the heels of her outstanding cross-country racing season where she set new PBs in the 10K, 15K and Half Marathon and finished first on the AV Women’s 45+ ladder. 

Sue reports (via Instagram) that she loved racing the Berlin Marathon and “felt so happy running through the Brandenburg gates and knowing all the training was  paying off.”   She was able to execute her racing plan perfectly – running a 1-minute negative split (not an easy task, in my experience).
