Gallagher powers through injuries to win men's half-marathon

  • Print

Winnipegger Corey Gallagher was the first to cross the finish line in the 2012 Manitoba Half Marathon race with a time of 1:10.

"It felt like at the end my body was hurting a bit," Gallagher said between breaths. "I've been battling injuries so at about the 9th, 10th mile I started feeling it but at that point it was just hold on"

The 25-year old Canada post employee hoped to run under 70 minutes but the 15 seconds won't keep him up at night.

"I've never won before, I've come second a few times so it's (the win) is what I've been gearing for."

Jeremy Walker from Winnipeg came in second at 1:13:46, while Darren Klassen grabbed third spot with a time of 1:13:56.

Times are unofficial.
