Weather, that ficklest of fates, smiled on Johnny Rutford at Saturday’s Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon in Duluth. Perfect conditions greeted those zipping down the western shore of Lake Superior. Johnny turned in a very fine 1:06:14 to finish 27th overall.
Significant achievement when put into this perspective:
Mike Morgan (Team Nebraska, 2003), 1:04:56
Johnny Rutford (LRC Racing, 2018), 1:06:14
Grant Wintheiser, (Run Guru Elite, 2017) 1:06:15
The top 3 times by Nebraskans for the half marathon in the “Modern LDR Era” 2001-1018.
Mike Morgan still atop the Nebraska half marathon (& marathon!) lists.
