KIND OF HARD GETTING UP THIS MORNING AFTER ALL THAT TURKEY WASN’T IT?
STEPHANIE SNAMAN Implementation & Training Specialist in SD ran with her uncle in the 40th annual Dallas YMCA Turkey Trot last week. This event was my first time running 8 miles and I had a blast! I finished the run in a little over an hour and 11 minutes. It was a great way to start the day! Stephanie and her Uncle ran in memory of her Aunt who passed away while competing at Ironman Florida on November 4th.
It’s great to hear from the BURNABY office. SHEILA VANDER-HOEK Systems Analyst, IS, DARYL SALISBURY Application Architect & ANGELA SO Developer, USTA went up to Whistler to ski/snowboard on opening day of Blackcomb. We are all jealous here in So. Cal.
MICHELLE ULRICH Account Executive Running SD office ran with her Twin sister the Run for the Hungry 10K in downtown San Diego. She ran a fast time of 41:01 which is a PR for her! She was 3rd overall female and 1st in her age group. Michelle that will beat about 98% of the guys in the company!
TOBY GUILLETTE, Online Community Specialist for Endurance sports in San Diego, backpacked in the Grand Canyon during Turkey Day weekend. He said that the Mule Deer, Rocky Mountain Elk and California Condor were more plentiful than hikers during his rim-to-river-to-rim trip.

NUNO COSTA Community Solutions ran the other San Diego Turkey Trot and it was a 5K. He ran in 19:31 7th in his age group and 36th overall, that equates to a 6:11 pace per mile.
TINA WILMOT Director Corporate Communications went up to Orange County to run the beautiful Dana Point Turkey Trot 10K. She has done that race almost 20 years now and was 9th in her age group with a time of 45:32 – WOW OUR WOMEN ARE FAST!
STEVE MAZZA wanted to get away so he camped and hiked in the largest national park in the continental US, Death Valley. A 3.8 million acre park known as the hottest, driest and lowest place in North America. The photo is the Panamint Dunes, a 9 mile round trip hike. Complete silence. No other humans. And one incredible view!
JANEAN NATION Jr. Account Manager also did the Fr Joe’s Turkey Trot in Balboa Park in SD with her boyfriend Tyler and her Dog. It was Tyler’s first 5K but the dog’s 5th. Man’s best friend nosed them both at the finish!
ARCH FUSTON was in San Anselmo, CA on Thanksgiving and ran their Turkey Trot. All he remembers is getting beat by a 5 year old riding his bike in the race.
NATALIE TILLEY Corporate Recruiter ran the beach Turkey Trot in San Francisco and because of the oil spill up there the event was changed for a 10k to a 5k. Natalie said she “leisurely ambled in at 33 minutes.”
CARRIE JAMES & ANDREW COLE School Finance Consultants, JIM DOMINELLO Manager Strategic Development climbed Iron Mountain in SD County. Carrie and Andrew were climbing together and when they got to the top there was fellow Active team member Jim Dominello enjoying the view. Carrie made it up even though she was stung by a bee in the ear.
LAUREN DACHILLE Account Exec Running appropriately Ran the turkey Trot in downtown SD and said she had a great time.
TAMMI SCHMIDT and MICHELLE NATION joined family and friends up in Sacramento for the Run to Feed the Hungry. Thanks to the miracle of cell phones, we were able to find each other in the crowd of 26,000+ runners & walkers!
DANA BLACKWOOD AE in SD ran/walked the Fr. Joe's Turkey Trot with her family as she does every year.
