At the P.F. Chang’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon on Sunday, Kara Goucher ran her first race since the birth of her son, Colton. Goucher finished second in the women’s race, running 1:14:02–two minutes and two minutes and 13 seconds behind Mexico’s Madai Perez and 2:28 back of web producer Mario Fraioli, whom Goucher challenged to a grudge match last month. Fraioli came out on top in this much ballyhooed battle, running 1:11:34 to Goucher’s 1:14:02. Check out these great shots of the two battling it out along the course of today’s race in Arizona.
