"My dad said to me that I should try running with the lead women," said Shaw. "I started passing some women, but I still thought that there might have been more women ahead of me. It wasn't until I got to the finish line that I realized there weren't any more women ahead of me."
With one victory under her belt, Shaw said the confidence she gained will help her in future road races.
"That's going to be kept in my mind, but for some of the races, it will be tough," said Shaw. "I'm going to run the Freihofer's [Run for Women] race, and they have some tough runners there."
With the right music, though, who knows where Sydney Shaw can finish?""
