24th September Galina Vinogradova participated in Moscow Marathon 2017 at 10 km event. She won a bronze medal and set up new PB = 34:19. The winner was, like last year, Elena Sedova (Russian champion-2017 at 10000 m) with 33:49, and second place got Ekaterina Sokolenko - 34:10 (Russian champion-2017 at 3000m steeplechase).
Full results are here. Galina was ahead of several tough distance runners: Natalia Popkova (Russian champion-2015 at 10000m, 32:25.22), Anastasiya Kushnirenko (winner of Perm international marathon-2017, 2:38:44), Galina Bubnova (Russian champion-2105 at 1500 m indoor), and some other strong runners.
The overall outcome is good: Galina finished the race just 30 seconds behind current Russian champion in 10000 m and 9 seconds behind another tough runner from Russian National team. Several other Russian elite distance runners were behind the girl from Orienteering. The second year in row G.Vinogradova won a medal. Also, Galina set up an impressive personal best, almost half-minute better than the previous one (34:19 vs 34:44). Well done!
