Santa Cruz Sentinel reader Nick Brautovich sent in this photo of the top three finishers of the She.Is.Beautiful 5-kilometer race in Santa Cruz on Sunday.

Prunedale’s Monica Jo Nicholson won [17:53], Aptos’ Nikia Brautovich was second [18:36] and Santa Cruz’s Sarah Meyer placed third to fill out to podium.

My colleagues over on the sports desk also did a write-up for the main race.
