HP Dentist Nabs Fifth Turkey Trot Trophy

DMN has the story on this year’s Turkey Trot where HP dentist Melisa Christian brought home her fifth title in the annual Thanksgiving Day run:

The 36-year-old Highland Park dentist won the eight-mile women’s division race through the streets of downtown Dallas on Thursday in 47 minutes, 50 seconds.

“I thought my winning days were over,” Christian said. “Every year, life gets a little more complicated with a few more aches and pains.”

The story goes on to say Christian won four straight from 2006-2009 before overcoming a back injury earlier this year to get back to the top.

Kudos to Christian!

    What, no photo? Did she used to be a body builder in a previous sporting life?
