Two of NewsChannel 11's Own Race to the Finish

At first glance, you'll recognize them as our 5pm anchor Mandy Lawrence and Sports Director Emily Jones...but since Thanksgiving, these ladies have been on a mission to fulfill a personal goal.

Stretching...running...and training to run a marathon. If you were in Austin this weekend, you might have seen them racing...or talking on their cells phones...near the UT campus...where Mandy and Emily, and about 10,000 other people, were pounding the pavement in their quest to run the Motorola half marathon.

We are proud to say that Mandy and Emily both completed that 13 mile run in 2 hours and 13 minutes. Actually Mandy came in ahead of Emily...by 2 seconds. Congratulations!
