It is said that life is a marathon and not a sprint. For Amy Klein this statement could not be more true.
The Owen County resident ran her first marathon in 2005. On Sept. 20 at the Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio, Klein won her first marathon.
According to Klein, about 1,000 women ran in the Air Force Marathon that featured 2,500 total runners. Klein captured the women’s 26.2-mile race in a time of 3:06.27.
