Saturday turned out to be a GREAT day for a running race. The rain held off until the afternoon which also made for a better day of spectating.  It’s always a treat to be at a race where so many of my athletes are participating, and having other team members out there cheering with me is awesome as well.

We had some GREAT results in both the half and full marathons.

Alexis, kickin’ ass in her first half.
Holly, all smiles after her first full.

Other Superlatives:
Back in Action:

Jen coming back strong in her fastest half in 5 years, and Sandy in her first standalone half in 3 years. Both did great!

Liz, who convinced Alexis to do the half int he first place, also put out a great result.

Challenge Daytona:

The Parker family escaped to sunny Florida for the Challenge Daytona weekend.

Scotty, Emmylou, Lily and Pam all ran the 5k Saturday and did awesome.

Scotty left plenty in the tank to join his dad Steve in the Half Distance duathlon on Sunday. Unfortunately, the weather caused the race to be shortened from the full distance turning it to a 1 mile run, 20 mile bike, 13.1 mile run.  And apparently it worked out well for Scotty BECAUSE he got 4th overall male.  Overall.  And he’s 14.

And that’s it- another weekend of racing in the books. Great job, team!
