Polson, Troup Win at Human Race 8K

Not unlike groundhogs in Pennsylvania, University of Minnesota alums Jeremy Polson and Rasa Troup announced the official start of Minnesota's spring road racing season with wins at the Human Race 8K in St. Paul yesterday.

Polson (pictured, #8) edged fellow Duluth native and resident Erik Hartmark (#20) for victory in the men's race. Polson clocked 24:06; Hartmark ran 24:10. Pete Gilman of Rochester was third in 24:59.

Troup beat Melissa Gacek for the women's title 28:07 to 28:47. Nicole Cueno was third in 28:53.
