On a windy morning in the Big Apple, Serena Burla overcame what appeared to be insurmountable barriers throughout the year and closed out her racing season with an outstanding performance on the challenging course in Gotham. Averaging around 5:47 per mile pace, Serena stuck with the break away lead pack of Olympic Medallists, World Champions and seasoned marathoners through 15 miles before a surge initiated by 2010 Boston Marathon Champion started to decimate the group.
