Rock ‘n’ Roll Running
Papakura-born athlete Kim Smith, has broken her personal US all-comers record winning the Rock ‘n’ Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon in 67:10, seven weeks out from the ING New York City Marathon. “I knew I was running pretty fast but I didn’t know what pace I was on,” Smith said. “I knew my mile splits but didn’t know what that meant. I was just trying to run hard and be relaxed and feel comfortable.” Smith holds the Oceanian records for the 3000, 5000 and 10,000 metres. She lives in Providence, Rhode Island.
