Soon after Hanna Grinaker crossed the finish line Saturday morning to win the Fargo Half-Marathon in the women’s division, she found out Eric Loeffler won the men’s race.


“I figured he would,” said Grinaker, who went to high school in Detroit Lakes, Minn. “He’s always so modest.”

The unassuming Loeffler has coached Grinaker for about a year. He completed his race in 1 hour, 7 minutes, 10.5 seconds at the Fargodome. Grinaker broke the tape in a time of 1:18:33.4.
