Recent Half-Marathon Results Three members ran half-marathons in Arizona in the past few weeks.
Lindsey Montoya completed the Valley of the Sun Half-Marathon in 2:01 on March 9th. That garnered her a place of 27th out of 77 in her AGE GROUP (big race!).
A week later, Julie Ford and Cathy Pfeifer ran the Arizona Distance Classic
north of Tucson. It was a very cool morning andsurprisingly hilly
course. That didn't stop Julie and Cathy from easily beating their time
Julie finished in a blazing 1:37:10 (a 7:25 mile
pace!), good enough for 10th overall and 2nd in her age group. Cathy
crossed in 1:51:21 for a 48th place finish and 6th in her age group.
Good job to all three of you!
Third Spring Running Series Results
Congratulations to Karen Haughness for winning the 3rd Spring
Series handicapped race. It was a flat course (and .6% short) and a lot of runners improved their time dramatically!
Brianne Loya also deserves some congratulations as she drove up from Las Cruces to complete her first 5k!
Second Spring Running Series Results
Congratulations to Liz Clabaugh again for winning the 2nd Spring
Series handicapped race. On a windy day an over a tough course, she was
the ONLY racer to beat their handicap, easily winning the field of 25.
Mount Taylor Quadrathlon Results
Quite a performance by some SSers! Lynette, Jan, Mary, and Catharine,
aka the Tech Hill Hellcats, took top spot in the 60+ relay, while Cathy
Pfeifer won her age group, Jeff Johnson garnered 5th in the large 35-39
class, and Christian Krueger came in 3rd in the M40-44 age group!
