Moninda Marube, age 31, of Keller, Texas, is the winner of the Men's Division with a time of 2:29:40. Marube said he found the running easy. “No one was pushing me so I found the running easy all the way!”

Little Rock native, Leah Thorvilson, age 31, is the winner of the 2010 Little Rock Marathon with a time of 2:48:28.

When asked how it felt to win two years in a row, Thorvilson replied, "It hurts!”

Thorvilson, who won the 2009 Little Rock Marathon with a time of 2:44:23, says she was disappointed she didn’t post an Olympic qualifying time with today’s race. “I ran a little too hard at the start. It’s just not my day for that, but having the city behind me was amazing! I’ve never had such personal support. It’s made it a very special day,” she said.

Thorvilson will try again in May to qualify in the Olympic trials.
