Ruth Perkins of Puyallup torched the women’s field Sunday at the Mercer Island Half Marathon.

Perkins, the reigning Tacoma City Marathon and Sound to Narrows champ, finished the 13.1-mile race in 1 hour, 17 minutes, 37 seconds. She was nearly eight minutes faster than the second place woman, Seattle University cross country coach and 3-time Seattle Marathon champ Trisha Steidl.

Perkins' time was faster than all but 13 of the men.

John Ricardi of Seattle won the men’s race in 1:08:30. The field for Sunday’s half marathon included 2,028 runners. Another 1,814 people combined to participate in the half marathon walk and 10- and 5-kilometer races.

Deep in Swan Creek Park’s Douglas fir forest is a new mountain bike trail with a meaningful name. Braking Bad. There are two ways to interpret the name, and both are right. First, a good mountain biker on a good trail rarely bothers with the brakes. Second, it’s a reminder that not so long ago these woods could have been a set for the popular AMC drug drama “Breaking Bad.”
