She was hardly even winded.  And with two cute little children at the finish line to greet her maybe we can understand why.  Twenty-eight year old mother of two Nicole Showengerdt won the 62nd annual International Pancake Day Race in a time of 1:03.41.  Olney's Nicky Stallis ran the English leg of the 415 yard "S" shaped curve in 1:12.  Showengerdt raced to a big lead on Kansas Avenue before the racers made their way to 5th Street.  She won by a wide margin running in between the snow flakes on a 28 degree day in Liberal.  Nicole says it was a thrill to win.  "It feels really good," the first time race winner said.  "I got a little tired at the end, but it was fun."  She says she worked hard for the race.  "I been training for two months now.  I've been doing a lot of weight lifting and cardio.  I've been training every single day."  

Rebecca Rees, a 23 year old student at BYU was second.  She ran the Olney race in 2008.  Mikayla Knudsen, a 21 year old SCCC/ATS student was third after taking second last year.  Liberal has won five straight and 12 of the past 13 races and leads the friendly competition 36-25-1.
