Here's a weekend warrior update from Switzerland. BRIAN BERGEY (ActiveEvents EMEA), ERIC OLSON, (ActiveEvents) and ANTHONY MILLER (ActiveEvents EMEA) did some team building in Flumserberg, Switzerland Saturday, taking some time to enjoy the Alps and "shred some serious Swiss gnar." I WONDER IF THAT WAS A WORK TRIP?
ADNAN ZAIDI, Tech Account Mgr Tennis played in the 58th Annual Challenge Cup Seniors tennis tournament in the Men’s 35s Singles division in Stockton, CA. I won my semi final match and am now in the finals this coming weekend. I am currently 22 in the country in the Men’s 35s. If I win this next match (i.e. tournament) I should move into the top 15. Here is a link to the tournament.
TODD PREECE reports a rainy weekend canceled most of the San Diego events this weekend so I went for a 10-mile trail run out of pure spite. It was a cold, slippy, sloppy mud bath with intermittent downpours. Felt more like an Amazon expedition than a trail run.
ALEX AFANDI had the pleasure to assist with the Pasadena ½ Marathon. My duties were mostly to organize the course and prepare the Aide Stations. The course was hilly and the vast majority of it was on dirt roads. Walking on wet dirt while carrying equipment took some balance skills. The race was very successful and 1200 competitors finished the race. I also got to cheer as I directed racer. Only one medical aide was needed. THANKS ALEX VOLUNTEERS ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF ALL ENDURANCE EVENTS!
KAT KEIVENS (Online Account Coordinator) competed in the Surf City Half Marathon this past weekend. This is her second half marathon ever in just two weeks (first was Carlsbad)!
EVAN WITTE had a leisurely relatively injury-free Surf City Half Marathon in Huntington Beach followed by an intense afternoon of chips, dip, and the Super Bowl.
More Gran Fondo (http://www.active.com/triathlon/san-diego-ca/gran-fondo-colnago-san-diego-2010) training for MARC VILLANUEVA, JEREMY SPITZBERG and TAWNYA BORDALO (Media + Marketing) who rode from Fiesta Island up to Del Mar, via the hill at Torrey Pines, and back.
MIKE REILLY, VP Major Event Sales along with his niece visiting from Columbus, Ohio did a 35 mile ride up and down the coast. While all the SD people riding on a 60 degree blustery day with long pants and sleeves my niece thought she was in the tropics wearing shorts. We are such wussies here!
TOBY GUILLETTE, social media specialist in San Diego put in 2.5 hours on the stationary trainer on Saturday while it was raining outside to prepare for the Grand Fondo San Diego in March. Then on Sunday, despite the weather, ran 14 miles in the mountains in east San Diego County. The run was 7 miles of climbing and 7 miles of descending. During the climb, the rain turned to snow! SEE EVERYONE IT DOES SNOW IN SAN DIEGO, AT LEAST IN THE MOUNTAINS.
