HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY EVERYONE!
MICHELLE ULRICH in SD ran the St. Patty’s Day Mission Bay 10K and ran a personal record 39:44! WOW what a great time coming in 2nd in her age group and 5th female overall.
ALLY WARD Industry Manager in SD also ran the St. Patty’s Day 10K on Saturday morning. Apparently running 12 minute miles doesn’t get you into the top 3 of your age division, but she had a great time and look forward to doing some more races soon.
It was a family affair for JIM DE LA CRUZ System Administrator who ran with his wife and pushing his 5-year old son Josh this past Saturday at the St. Pat’s 10k at Fiesta Island. It was great weather for the run! Way to go Jim but your son crossed the finish line before you did!
EMILY CHAN-NORRIS Account Manager for Active Trainer also ran the St. Patrick’s Day 4-Mile Run this weekend in Mission Bay Park with fellow Active friends and co-workers KAREN HARDY, BETHANY DOMINICK, and ASHLEY BRINSTER. The beer and pizza waiting for us at the finish line was a little hard to stomach at 8:10am, so we went out for a celebratory brunch instead. Later in the day I hiked at Oak Canyon (part of Mission Trails) which I’d recommend to anyone who wants to feel like they need to get away from San Diego for a bit. Though it was only a short drive from PB, I felt like I was in Wyoming or something. Good times.
On Saturday, TOBY GUILLETTE, CARRIE SMITH and JESSE HAMMOND went for a two-mile swim from La Jolla Shores to La Jolla Cove and back. After the initial numbing of their feet and hands they were able to get moving and had a great swim. They saw some lazy seals floating around, had to crawl over a veritable island of seaweed and rolled along with 10-foot waves. All-in-all, a great way to start the open water swimming season.
TRAVIS FREEBORN in SD rode his bike about 40 miles this weekend up and down the coast of So Cal.
MICHELLE SHAFFER VP Compliance hiked up Cowles Mtn on Saturday enjoying the day.
TINA NOVAK Software Trainer tried out her new Snowboard and went up to Bear Mtn. in So Cal. The board did great and Tina said it passed with flying colors, we hope you did also.
ANDREA RISHMAWI and LINDA MARKEY hiked Iron Mountain in exactly an hour and a half…best time yet! Andrea also did Cowles Mountain this weekend along with a stop at The Field Irish Pub in downtown SD to rehydrate!
KELLY BELL AMG Senior Account Manager enjoyed the beautiful Rocky Mountain National Forest at 9,000+ feet in elevation! I had the pleasure of enjoying the beauty of the RMNF in the winter by taking a snowshoe hike up to Emerald Lake and Alberta Falls. It was great tooling around town (Estes Park) and catching the Elk (behind her in the picture) as they roamed through town as well!
