An injury prevented Melissa Dock from defending her title in the Bolder Boulder women‘s citizen‘s race a year ago.
Healthy this year, the Boulder resident was back in the top spot.
On Monday morning, Dock, 36, won the women‘s race for the second time in three years, completing the 10K course in a personal-best time of 34 minutes, 44.69 seconds.
“It‘s such a privilege,” she said. “This race is so big for the community and I‘m just so grateful to be here and to have had a good race. The weather conditions were perfect, the course and the fans, there were awesome volunteers. Just really amazing.”
Dock was a full minute faster than two years ago, when she posted a winning time of 35:44.
Overall, this was her fourth time participating in the Bolder Boulder. She was second in 2014 and sixth in 2015.
