Lehmkuhle, Moen Out of USA Half Marathon

Team USA Minnesota president Pat Godwin announced recently that team members Jason Lehmkuhle and Josh Moen will not compete at this weekend's USA Half Marathon Championships due to minor injuries suffered over the holidays.

The Twin Cities-based elite training group will still be represented by Antonio Vega in the men's field. Vega, you'll remember, made a strong debut at the distance in the New York City Half Marathon last July, placing 11th in 1:04:26.

Competing in the women's race for Team USA Minnesota will be Kristen Nicolini Lehmkuhle, Michelle Lilienthal and Meghan Armstrong.
