Our athletes competed in Puerto Rico, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Cincinnati, and Fountain Hills over the last couple of weekends. We’d like to give a big shout out to Caroline Sekaquaptewa who set a PR at the LA Marathon with a time of 3:33. You’ve heard us say it a million times–start “slow,” finish fast. Here are Caroline’s comments from the race:
This race was funny. I started slow…And at the half I was way behind my time I wanted to be at. I almost was thinking ok, I can’t make the time I want so ill just finish it as a training run. I picked up the pace, then kept going because I wasn’t feeling tired. The last 4 miles were hard, but only because I was running fast to make sure I was under 3:40. I didn’t realize I was going to make the time until around mile 18. It was so exciting. I was smiling the last 4 miles, even though I was hurting. A very cool run.
Also, congratulations for Mark Williams and G Parekh who raced the San Juan 70.3. This was Mark’s first ever triathlon and G’s first 70.3!
On the East Coast, Lindsey Buckman and Kyrsten Sinema finished the DC ½ marathon and Frank Smith ran the Cincinnati ½ marathon.
