A GREAT WEEKEND OF RUNNING IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA! ON A PERSONAL NOTE MY WIFE AND I WITNESSED OUR 24 YEAR DAUGHTER FINISH HER FIRST MARATHON IN A TIME OF 4:40 HERE IN SAN DIEGO. Mike
ALAN COLE & his wife Jill completed the Keebler Kids Marathon Mile with their beautiful daughter Bridget (who turns 2 in March). This kid-friendly precursor to the Carlsbad marathon takes runners on a mile-long course through LEGOLAND. Just my speed
STEPHANY CAVATONI (Cardenas) in SD said she is happy to say the Cardenas family (including Stella age 4 and Lucas age 5) successfully finished the Keebler Marathon Mile at Legoland this weekend!
CHRIS WHEELER School Finance ActiveEducate went skiing Friday and Saturday in Vail, Colorado. The snow was great with tons of fresh powder. It was freezing though with temperatures around or below zero the entire time. All in all it was an amazing weekend.
ANDREW COLE, CARRIE JAMES ANDREA RISHMAWI & JOHN PISCATTI (who found us on the Active Community Blog) hiked the 11.2-mile trail at El Cajon Mountain this Sunday morning at 7:00AM!! We didnt get to finish all 11 miles everyone wanted to get back in time for the Chargers game, so it ended up being about 9 miles. Nonetheless were talking about some TROOPERS on a Sunday morning J
BROOKE KIRKPATRICK ran the Carlsbad ½ marathon with my college friend and fiancé. We finished at 2:07.
KEVIN BEATTY also completed the Carlsbad half with a PR of 1:47 minutes
AMBER MARTIN Senior Mkt Analyst with another great running weekend! She ran the Carlsbad Half along with a bunch of other Active people. I ran it in 1:54:23 which was 1 minute off my PR on that course. I was proud because the last 2 miles where the hardest 2 miles I have run, because all the soreness and cramping from my marathon last weekend came back, but I was able to push through and keep at pace. Now its time for a break before I ramp up again for the spring.
MOLLY MUELLER ran in the Carlsbad Half Her first half marathonJ way to go Molly!
MICHELLE ULRICH Event Sales said Carlsbad was fantastic yesterday. I dont think I have ever felt that good in a race. Everything felt great! I ran a PR of almost 4 minutes. 1:28:22, 6:45 pace, 23rd female overall and 7th in my age group. I am still on a high this morning and woke up thinking whats next J
KRISTIN HARTOS Impementation Analyst did the Carlsbad Half Marathon yesterday, marking my first endurance event. My IT band flared up right around mile 6 (which I expected from my training), but I still managed to finish the race in 2:49. I must thank Michelle Nation for getting me to sign up and helping me find my inner runner, and my friends for showing up on race day to motivate (and embarrass) me. Couldnt have done it without them!! J
MICHELLE NATION ran the Carlsbad Half this weekend with my older sister Kristie and some friends from Active (Megan Duvall & Kirstin Hartos). We had a blast taking in the perfect weather and beautiful scenery, but missed my younger sister (and co-worker) Janean who had to sit this one out due to injury! Cant wait to get together again for the La Jolla Half in April J
JOSIE DONNELLY Director Account Management said she didnt break any records!!! I ran at a snails pace. But considering it was my first half marathon and I only trained for 3 weeks my goals was just to finish. I did it with my sister, which was wonderful.
Man, feeling pretty sore today!
SARAH MOOSBRUGGER ran the Carlsbad Half Marathon with a couple of other Active people (Molly Mueller, Mary Cecil, Arch Fuston, Mike Coleman to name a few) crossed the finish line with Arch Fustons wife (Christy) with a 1:59 time if she hadnt been there to pull me through, I wouldnt have made it in under 2! It was a really nice day, chilly at first, but a great run along the coast. I think Molly even saw some dolphins to help inspire her through the race.
ERIKA WINTER Endurance Swimming ran her first half Marathon in Carlsbad this weekend!
ANDI NEUGARTEN Active International had a beautiful day in Carlsbad for the ½ and is
Happy with her 1 hour 40 minute run as a beginning of my training season. And she just arrived back from a week long Europe sales swing.
MIKE COLEMAN Dir of training was at it again 2 weekends in a row. He did Arizona RNR last week, Carlsbad 1/2 this week breaking the 2:00 mark with a 1:57. Think I will take a break next week.
