Pool and Meyer Win Kaiser Permanente Napa Valley Marathon
Kevin Pool of Folsom, Calif. didn’t plan on winning today’s 35th Annual Kaiser Permanente Napa Valley Marathon. He entered the 26.2-mile race through the scenic Napa Valley wine-growing region as a training run in preparation for this coming April’s Boston Marathon. On the other hand, San Francisco’s Michelle Meyer set a goal of recording a fast time, and possibly a women’s win, at Napa. Both Pool and Meyer emerged victorious in close contests and were crowned Road Runners Club of America national marathon champions. The marathon served as Road Runners Club of America’s 2013 National Marathon Championship. Read more here...
