Team USA Minnesota is Reindeer Running

Just as Santa has eight reindeer powering his sleigh each Christmas Eve -- foggy nights and Rudolph notwithstanding -- so too will Team USA Minnesota feature eight of its prancing runners at Saturday's 22nd Annual Lifetime Fitness Reindeer Run.

Representing Team USA Minnesota, for which Lifetime Fitness is a major sponsor, are:

-- Kristen Nicolini Lehmkuhle, the third-placer at the 2009 USA Women's Marathon Championship

-- Emily Brown, the 2009 USA Cross Country Champion

-- Michelle Lilienthal Frey, the fourth placer at the 2009 USA 25k Championships

-- Meghan Armstrong, a member of the 2009 U.S. Chiba Ekiden team

-- Jason Lehmkuhle, the third placer at the USA 20k Championships and sixth at the 2009 USA Men's Marathon Championship

-- Josh Moen, the second placer at the 2009 USA 10 Mile Championship with the fifth fastest U.S. time ever at the distance

-- Antonio Vega, the fifth placer at the 2009 USA 7 Mile Championships and eighth at the 2009 Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon

-- Matt Gabrielson, member of the U.S. marathon team at the 2009 IAAF World Outdoor Championships.

The event, which expects to draw some 3000 runners, stars at 9:00 a.m. with a kids run.
