NDN Half Marathon Notebook: Perkins finishes first, perfect weather and world records
January 14, 2018
The first person to cross the finish line Sunday at the 29th Naples Daily News Half Marathon in downtown Naples didn’t win the race, and she didn’t need her legs to finish.
Edie Perkins, a veteran of the Naples half marathon, crossed the line at 7:50 a.m. riding her specialized handcycle. Perkins, 47, powered the three-wheeled bike with her hands after being paralyzed from the chest down in a biking accident in April.
