Waweru, McGregor Win at 13.1 Minneapolis

Moses Waweru and Katie McGregor earned victories -- and $1000 paychecks -- at the 13.1 Minneapolis Half Marathon on Sunday in Minneapolis.

Waweru, a Kenyan who once made his home in Minnesota, clocked an event record 1:05:44 to best Duluth's Eric Hartmark (1:06:32) and countryman Richand Kandie (1:08:16) for the men's title.

Former teammate Michelle Frey finished runner-up in 1:15:54. St. Olaf College alumnus Jenna Boren clocked 1:17:11 for third.
