Our team had a fun morning at the ShamRox 15k/5k this morning. Some of us really raced, and some used it as an easy long run or tune-up workout for our true Spring goal races. Either way, there were some decent times that came out of this morning, and our team brought home a lot of medals (Jamie, Joy, Heidi, Malinda, and Nicole).
We had several PRs (Ashley, Nicole, Boston, Angela, Jamie, Katie, Heidi, and Casey), and we were happy to find a spot on the corner of the square to cheer our teammates to the finish line. Congrats to Angela, Ashley, Casey, Debra, Heidi, Katie, Malinda, Jamie, Lendall, Nicole, Boston, and Joy on races well done today. Whether your PR was by 12 minutes or 10 seconds, congrats!
We know many of you have many races planned for the spring. We have athletes participating in the following (plus more):
Havin' A Crappie Day 5k/Challenge/Mile (Stockton State Park)
Big Party Half (Camp Barnabas) (Springfield)
Rock the Parkway Half Marathon (Kansas City)
Go Girl Half Marathon (Springfield)
Illinois Half Marathon (Champaign/Urbana, IL)
Hairy's Run for Clean Water (Lebanon)
Run for the World 5k (Lebanon)
and probably a ton more you haven't told us about yet.
Keep up the good work - today was a good chance to see how you're doing with your progress (despite some injuries). We will see you on Wednesday!
