This past weekend Team Alchemy’s Nicole Chyr toed the line in what was an incredibly deep field at the Greenland 25K. With a weather warning from the Race Director which included temperatures in the 80’s and a strong Southerly wind, not to mention a course that basically goes straight up and straight down, “challenging” would be a bit of an understatement!
Running this race for her second time, Nicole felt more prepared for this year’s race by carrying a water bottle of her own to make up for the fact that there are only two aid stations. Wisely deciding to race her own race early on, Nicole was racing with her eye on this year’s Colfax Marathon (which she won last year!). Even while coming off a bit of an injury and being relatively conservative, Nicole ran her way to a two minute course PR and third place!
Next up for Nicole is the aforementioned Colfax Marathon where she’ll be defending her title!
