Great weekend of racing for Team AMEC!
At the Kiawah Half-Marathon we had a podium and a PR.
Ken rocked it out, coming in under 1:45 and placing 2nd in his AG. He’s had issues with injury (calf strains, hamstring pulls, etc) for the last few years. Hasn’t had a single one in the last 6 months – incidentally coinciding with his switch to gluten-free. Coincidence? Not sure, but I am really happy with his performance.
ALSO, super proud of my man Hank! We went into this race feeling good, feeling confident, and a PR ensued. Very excited for him to have shaved 7 minutes off his previous best. That was a great 13.1 effort.
In unfortunate news, Jerry decided to put a nail through his foot last week instead of running Kiawah. And Tracey thought it would be fun to lock up her IT band to the point of barely being able to walk. We were ALL totally ready to crush and PR this race, so both going to recover that foot and try again at the Charleston Half- Marathon in a few weeks. See, it happens to all of us from time to time. So we pick up, brush off, carry on.
Finally, Andy had himself a great weekend, too. He crushed the Monday Night Brewing 10k on Saturday. (The brewery is called Monday Night- see how that could be confusing? ) He ran a speedy 41, which was good to place 1st in his AG and 12th overall! Looking forward to an exciting 2015 season for him.
As always, love reporting on everyone on Team AMEC. You really should consider jumping on board for 2015. We’re a fun bunch.
