It was a beautiful day at the Charleston Marathon. Team AMEC didn’t have any athletes racing the full, but we had a lot of success in the half marathon!
While Scotty’s main focus is riding across the country this summer for Scotty’s Ride for Water, he still loves to run for cross training. He had an amazing result today, shaving almost 30 minutes off his previous PR and making his goal of breaking 2 hours. He came in at an impressive 1:58!
He’s a remarkable 12 year old. Be sure to follow his journey this summer on his facebook page.
Sarah met her goal of breaking 1:40 with a time of 1:38. Not only was this a PR for her, it was also good enough for 5th in her AG – a measly 3 seconds behind 4th place. She’s got the Charlie Post Classic 15k to crush in a few weeks, then we’ll focus on the 2017 triathlon season.
While we are on the topic of PRs, Missy also crushed her previous best by 12 minutes and achieved her goal of breaking 2 hours. She finished in 1:56 and I am so proud of her! If you’ve been reading these updates you’ll know that she’s had a great running season- she significantly crushed her time each time at every 5k she has done since we started working together.
Ken didn’t PR today but he came in at 1:51 which was good enough for a 2nd place in the male 65-69 AG.
No PR for Joelle either, but she had a great time of 1:55. Consistent training has been a bit of a challenge for her over the holiday season due to being a clothing retail manager and putting in crazy hours, but she went out and enjoyed herself which is all that matters.
Great job everyone! It’s been a little quiet lately on the Weekend Update front, but the 2017 season is kicking into gear now and expect to read about a bunch of awesomeness soon!
One last thing… I’m part of a 4 person team in Race Across America this summer. It’s an epic 3000+ mile race from Oceanside, Ca to Annapolis, Md that we hope to finish in less than 8 days.
