Mark Livingston – Bryce Canyon 50-miler
Well, what a week. . . .
In the midst of EVERYTHING, we are thrilled to be able to present some race results.
Scott Wiegand completed a virtual ½ marathon over Memorial Day weekend and finished it in 2:34. As many of our athletes have found, virtual races have been a great way to continue to compete, as well as test one’s fitness.
Mark Livingston raced the Bryce Canyon 50-mile ultra-run this past weekend. Yes, it was held with plenty of COVID-related restrictions in place. But this is one of the first endurance events to be held since the outbreak and may provide a roadmap for other events. Mark finished the race in 13:29 under hot conditions. This time was good enough for 5th in his AG!
Congratulations to both Scott and Mark! Have a great weekend!
Happy Mother’s Day, all!
We hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy, while enjoying this spring weather/heat!
We just wanted to give a shout out to Frank Smith who kept his monthly marathon streak alive last weekend when he completed the Spring Thaw Virtual 50K in Ohio. Frank ran 31 miles in 7:01 on an 80-degree day! Nice job keeping it going, Frank!!
Have a great weekend!
