Sunny skies and warm temperatures, even on a Chamber of Commerce kind of day, don’t always yield fast times during a half marathon. That wasn’t an issue at the OUC Orlando Half Marathon on Saturday, December 6 as some of Florida’s fastest competed for bragging rights at the USA Track & Field Florida Association Half Marathon Championship. The state championship is sanctioned by USA Track & Field, the governing board of the sport of running.
Seth Proctor, Orlando, an Edgewater High School grad and recent FSU alum finished third overall and was the first Floridian with a time of 1:10:16.
Heather Schulz, Orlando, was the second fasted woman of the day (out of 1770) and also the first female Floridian who captured the state championship with a time of 1:22:06.
