Serena Burla took second at the recent Aramco Chevron Half Marathon. Shortly after that race, a medical exam for a nagging hamstring showed a malignant tumor in her right hamstring. Fortunately, it has not spread, and Serena is having her surgery and therapy at Sloan Kettering, per the story in Race Results Weekly: http://www.runnerspace.com/news.php?do=view&news_id=9339.

Please keep Serena, her son Boyd, and her husband Adam (a shot-putter), in your thoughts and prayers. Serena met Adam where they were teammates and the University of Missouri. RBR looks forward to seeing Serena on the roads again soon!
