Celebrating the New Year by running sounds like a dream for many of us, but many on the Fleet Feet Race Team got to do just that. Aleisha Chaffin was trained up and ready to run her 1st 100 miler, and run it she did, finishing in an amazingly fast time of 18:15!! She was 5th overall. She has thrown a time out there that many others on the team have to chase.
