12/4/2003: Ultrarunners of the month for November 2003, brought to you by Ultrafit Sports, The Endurance Performance Leader
Nikki Kimball, 32, of Elizabethtown, NY was the top American and 8th overall at the IAU 100K World Cup in Tainan County, Taiwan, which took place on November 16th. Running under some of the most difficult conditions ever with very high humidity and temperatures in the 80's, Kimball stayed strong throughout the hilly 62.1 mile course and lead the American women to a strong 4th place team finish.
Joe Gaebler, 26, of Boulder, CO won the National 24 Hour Championship in San Diego with a personal best performance of 162.2 miles. This performance ranks 3rd on the all-time best performance list for American men and comes just two months after finishing a close second at the Olander Park National 100 Mile Championship in Sylvania, Ohio.
Congratulations to these two outstanding performers!
