Lost Dutchman Half Marathon, Desert Duathlon

Joan McGue – Desert Duathlon

We had a wet few days of racing last weekend! Despite the weather, our athletes turned in some great performances.

In the Lost Dutchman ½ Marathon, Beth Lofquist finished in 2:09 and took 9th in her AG.

We had three racers at the Desert Duathlon in the McDowell Mountains. The day was rainy and the course was muddy for the off road sections.
Jennifer Talbot – 3:07 – 5th in AG
CJ Ketterer – 2:29 – 2nd in AG
Joan McGue – 3:39 – 1st in AG (super cool photo of Joan here)

Good luck to everyone running the Phoenix Marathon and ½ Marathon this weekend! The weather looks like it’s going to be great. Remember to dress as though the start temperature is 20 degrees warmer than it is. In other words, if the morning temp is 45 deg, dress as though it was 65 deg. This will keep you from overheating once the race is underway. Good luck everyone!
