Spring Running Series Results   

Congratulations to Julie Aster for winning the final Spring Running Series handicapped race! It was lovely weather and we also had a great time afterwards thanks to Gustaafs hosting of the brunch.

As expected, Liz showed up to complete her domination for the series title - great job!

Note: I accidentally cut off Travis Le-Doux and intentionally cut off all the racers who only completed one of the first 3 races.

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 goals, though.

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!

Julie at the AZ Dist. Classic 08

Third Spring Running Series Results   

Congratulations to Karen Haughness for winning the 3rd Spring Running 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!
