Freihofer Run For Women In Downtown Albany – Photos

No, I didn’t run in the race!  Somehow I didn’t qualify (wrong sex and also out of shape!)   But I did have a chance to go and see the whole thing for the first time, and it was phenomenal – plus a great “photo op”

The great race took place  at the Empire State Plaza in downtown Albany,  and it couldn’t have been a more beautiful day for the 36th Annual Run for Women 5-K.

According to LetsRun.com, the winner of the race was Lucy Kabuu of Kenya.  She ran it in 15:20. beating Mamitu Daska and Afrera Godfay to take home $10,000.  Your friendly Sean and Richie correspondent (moi) was on the scene to capture these photos.  First, the winner and second place finalist.
