Team USA Minnesota's Katie McGregor ran a personal best 2:31:01 to finish 11th among women in yesterday's ING New York City Marathon.
McGregor (pictured) was the runner-up in the USA Women's Marathon Championship held in conjunction with the race. Shalane Flanagan, the second place finisher overall, won the USA title in 2:28:40.
Kenya's Edna Kiplagat won the women's title in 2:28:20.
McGregor's finish in the USA Championship confirmed her 2010 USA Running Circuit title -- a grand prix comprising all of the year's USA Championship road race. McGregor won USA titles at 15K, 25K, and 10 miles this year.
McGregor topped her 2008 marathon PR of 2:31:14, also set at New York, with a negatively split race through the city's five boroughs. The University of Michigan alum passed the half-way stripe in 1:15:48, after an opening 5K of 18:41 and a first 10K of 36:01.
