Heat doesn't scare off Run for the Heart 5K competitors

The heat did not deter a field of more than 200 runners and walkers who turned out Saturday for the inaugural Run for the Heart 5K in Morrisville.

Veteran Triangle road racer Erik Olson, 32, of Durham covered the certified 5K course in 18 minutes flat, organizer Jim Young of Young & Associate timing company reported. Brian Smith, 27, of Carrboro, who set the pace for most of the race, followed in 18:04.

Janice Martin, 39, of Cary won the women's competition and finished eighth overall in 20:20. Cathy Gugerli, 39, of Cary was second in 22:26.
