NEW PALESTINE — The sun was shining but the air was cold, bitter cold, the kind of cold that makes your lungs hurt after breathing in deeply.
It was only nine degrees when New Palestine’s Courtney and Caitlynn Edon took off for a quick six-mile run through their neighborhood in New Palestine. The two were home on winter break from college. But, there is no break from running.
The 19-year-old twin sisters were heading out for a light run, just a day after logging 12 miles on route to the over 60 miles they run every week to stay in shape.
The Edon sisters are no strangers to anyone who knows anything about running in Hancock County. For years the girls dominated cross country and track meets running for New Palestine High School.
Now the dynamic duo is making a name for themselves at the collegiate ranks. The sophomore sisters are running cross country in the fall, indoor track in the winter and outdoor track in the spring for Ball State University.
