Ellen Komesarook Wins
Sets New Women's Course Record

Andiamo Starters

Ellen Komesarook won the Andiamo 2009 45-Mile Run and also set a new women's course record. The run took place under near-perfect conditions. The first male was Bernard Pesjak. The day started a bit warm and humid, with a temperature around 70 degrees. But, under cloudy skies, the temperatures decreased as the day went on, and after a very light shower the humidity decreased as well. Ellen is the second woman to win Andiamo outright.

As with any event, Andiamo had valuable support from several volunteers. Paul Blackman helped drive runners to the start. Roving aid was provided by Kathy Malinowski, George McVeigh, and Rebecca Moore. Extra aid (beyond the few that were promised) was supplied by Dean Roberts near mile 17; John Anderson near mile 36. Thanks to all!
