Clock was ticking


Arrowtowner Sharon Schindler finished just 53sec shy of the 12-hour cut-off in last Sunday’s 89.2km Comrades Marathon in South Africa. She’s pictured after the race in Durban with husband Dave Schindler, who finished in 10hr 8min, an hour faster than his first Comrades in 2007. Last year’s winner, Zimbabwean Stephen Muzhingi, won again in 5:29.1sec. Some 23,500 runners competed.
