Meet the 2016 Blue Cross Broad Street Run's Top Female Runner

No amount of rain, dark clouds or headwind could damper Crystal Burnick's spirit in the moments after she crossed the finish line at the 2016 Blue Cross Broad Street Run, placing first among women in the race and 92nd overall.

Burnick, 27, who is from Skippack, Montgomery County, ran the 10-mile race in 57:05, with a pace of 5:42 per mile, according to race standing statistics.

NBC10 was there as she and her fiance, Bob Bacon -- who also ran the race -- shared a special moment together beyond the finish line.

"She always impresses me more and more, and this is just icing on the cake," said Bacon, 28, as he stood next to Burnick. "She works so hard, she gets out there every day just grinding, and this is the reward for it, and I couldn't be happier. So that's why I had to finish as fast as I could, to give her a kiss."
