ActiveX made a good showing at the 2010 Endurance Sports Awards ride and expo this past Saturday. A number of Xers participated in the 200+ cyclists, 25 mile bike ride. Mike Reilly, Ricky Gray, Airey Baringer, Mark Warble, Marc Villaneueva, Tawnya Bardolo, Chris and Julie Barnwell, and Arch and Christy Fuston rode in the peloton with the likes of Craig Alexander (2009 Ironman Hawaii winner), Chris Lieto (2009 Ironman Hawaii runner-up), and Kristen Armstrong (world-champion trim trial). We got dropped.
Rebecca Divita (ETeams), Jim Garfield (M&M) and Tina Novak (Active) journeyed to Aspen for the winter X-Games. Thrills, chills and definite spills were had by all, including the three of us. Truly death deifying and gravity resistant tricks were the rule of the weekend….oh and a live concert by 50cent….
Orlando, FL, some of the ActiveGolf team went to Orlando for the 2010 PGA Show. The day prior to the show a group of us (Ben Cruise, Matt Kessler, Joe Pink and Don Cramer) were able to get in a round of golf at the new Waldorf Astoria Golf Club at Disney World (OpenCourse Client). The golf was unfortunately, well above par. However, it was a great time to catch up and enjoy the sport we are involved in.
Liz Harrell (Director, Product Management & Projects), Kat Keivens (Online Operations) and Jeremy Spitzberg (Development Manager, UI) rode the coast on a beautiful Sunday morning in Southern California. 26 miles from Solana Beach to Carlsbad and back. Gearing up for the Gran Fondo in a month!
Deborah Linggi, Director, Employee Communications -- New Year's resolutions to get/stay fit are still going strong. I taught packed spin classes on both Saturday and Sunday morning at 24 Hour Fitness.
On Saturday, Kat Keivens (Online Account Coordinator) ran in the Lake Hodges 5k Race along with some fellow Active Employees and finished with a time of 26:04.40. On Sunday Kat enjoyed a scenic 26 mile bike ride and played a soccer game.
Michele Crepeau Skied Vail sat, snow shoed at Beaver Creek Sunday, AMAZING:)
Toby Guillette, Social Media Specialist in San Diego, ran the Sun Strides Foundation Lake Hodges 5K on Saturday morning in 18:24 which was good for 8th place overall and 1st place in the 20-29 age group. It was great to celebrate at the finish line with fellow Active Weekend Warriors who also ran the 5K: Andrea Rishmawi, Giselle Domdom, Kat Kievens and Jason Johnson!
