In her first attempt at the distance, Lisa Stublic ran a spectacular 2:33:42 to place 9th overall in the very competitive Berlin Marathon on September 26. After a 1:17:52 first half, Lisa picked up the pace to finish well below her goal of getting the Olympic “A” marathon standard, which is 2:37:00. As a Croatian citizen, her time qualifies her for automatic selection to the 2012 Croatian Olympic Team. Congratulations, Lisa!
