Meg Lewis-Schneider has come back from a series of injuries and perhaps a case of RED-S, where she got herself down to just 88 pounds. With her health scares she was off of running for approximately three years.

“Regardless of my time, I am in such a good place right now and so happy to be back running,” said Lewis-Schneider, who is coached by Jim Finlayson. “I have to give a shout out to my coach, he has been so patient with me. I didn’t expect to win in my first race back.”

Lewis-Schneider clocked a 35:38 finish time. She has run as fast as 34:53. The 28-year-old expected a better time in Cobble Hill but was thrilled with finishing healthy.
