RR  Jenny Hitchings breaks her 3rd F55 AR at Urban Cow Half

Since turning 55 on July 1, Jenny Hitchings has been on quite a tear taking down three F55 American Records. On 8/11 she broke USATF Masters Hall of Famer Shirley Matson’s 18:32 5K mark from 1997 at the Carlsbad 5000 with an 18:05 set at the Susan B. Anthony Women’s 5K, on 9/9 she took down S. Rae Baymiller’s (another USATF Masters Hall of Famer) 10 Mile record set at the Crim Festival in 1998 with a 1:01:20 at the Buffalo Stampede, and yesterday, at the Urban Cow Half Marathon, she took down another Shirley Matson record (1:23:09 – 1996) with a terrific 1:21:18 (chip time – useable for Masters records). Three records, all over 20 years old, set by Masters Hall of Fame greats, broken in less than two months without leaving Sacramento, now that’s efficacy.
