A Tale of Pacing and Results from LA Marathon, San Juan 70.3, D.C. Half Marathon, Cincinnati Half Marathon, Mountain to Fountain 15K

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.
