Flip Flops 50K – Ohio

We THINK we have our email problems resolved, but just in case you don’t receive a response from us or if you receive an error message, you can still text. Or, you can reach us at info@camelbackcoaching.com. BUT NOW, TO BETTER THINGS – LIKE RACE RESULTS!

We’d like to congratulate Frank Smith who kept his monthly marathon streak alive by completing the Flip Flops 50K this past weekend in Ohio. Frank finished the 50K in 7:14 under hot and humid conditions. Nice job Frank!

EMAIL PROBLEM UPDATE – AUG 6th

We are still unable to receive emails at bill@camelbackcaoching.com. It looks like anne@camelbackcoaching.com is working. If you need to get a hold of Bill, we are still receiving emails at info@camelbackcoaching.com. So please use this for now if you need to reach Bill or just text. Thanks again for bearing with us as we endeavor to get this fixed.

Email error messages from Camelback Coaching

EMAIL UPDATE FOR BOTH ANNE AND BILL – AUG 5TH – We are both having problems with our email now When you send emails to us, they are getting kicked back to you with error messages. So, for now, if you need to get a hold of us, texting would probably be the best option. So sorry about this. It has been over a week now that our emails have been acting up. We hope we can get this resolved shortly.

Admin note – Anne’s email not working as of Sunday, July 26th

Just a quick administrative note. Anne is having trouble with her email. She can receive okay, but she can’t send anything. SO, if you’ve sent her an email from as far back as Sunday, July 26th, and have not received a response, that is why. If you have Anne’s cell, you can text her. If you’re a new athlete, just send us a FB message and we can connect that way. Sorry about this!

8-hour Dream Endurance Run, Indianapolis

The 8-hour Dream Endurance run was held last weekend. This was an actual, live, in-person ultra-race held in Indianapolis, IN. This race was done on a looped course and the goal was to complete as many miles as you could within 8 hours. Frank Smith took on the race and completed 31.1 miles. This was good enough for 3rd in his AG! Nice job Frank!
 
Since we don’t have a photo from Frank’s race, I added one of our son climbing in Flagstaff. 🙂
 
Enjoy the monsoon weather this weekend!

Guntersville, AL Sprint Tri

Happy Saturday, everyone!
 
Believe it or not, triathlons are actually being held in the US! The Guntersville, AL Sprint Tri was held this past weekend and Ed Wallis raced it. It was Ed’s very first tri and he finished in a super time of 1:34. Nice job Ed! (The photo is from this morning’s hike in McDowell Mountain Regional Park). 

Bryce Canyon 50-mile Ultra-Run and Memorial Day Virtual Half Marathon

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!

Virtual Racing

Congratulations to all 2020 graduates! I have to say, Bill and I had never envisioned a drive-through graduation from high school for our kids, but it was actually pretty great!
 
We’d like to give shout out to a couple of our athletes who enjoyed virtual races last weekend. These virtual races can be a great way to keep your competitive juices flowing! Congratulations, guys!
