“The crowd is always, it’s everything. I love that last mile,” Fisher said.

Brace said that last year presented a completely different set of challenges with frigid temperatures. This year, heat was an issue that she was able to overcome.

And in the spirit of friendly competition, Brace said she accomplished one major goal.
