McCreath wins gold

Transsexual athelete Jennifer McCreath has finished the marathon at the 2009 Outgames in Denmark, making her the first person in world history to run a marathon in a third gender catgory specific for transsexuals, winning a gold medal for the achievement.

…She was the only one running in the category, but still. It’s definitely a landmark.

Here’s the text from her blog:

wow, i just completed the marathon about an hour ago. it went very well. i chose a pace that i felt comfortable with and sustained it pretty much all the way thru.. 2.08.00 on the front 2.11.54 on the back, giving me a fairly respectable 4.19.54 goal was just to break 5 hours so i am really happy… got a gold medal for me efforts too, which was great. i am now the first formally recognized transsexual in world history to run a marathon..

looking forward to dinner with dignitaries tonight and then the swim tomorrow
