HAPPY FATHER’S DAY YESTERDAY TO ALL THE ACTIVE DAD’S.
JESSICA WEXLER - San Diego Foundations Team On father's day my father and I rode our favorite bike route down to the beach in LA. I am grateful that he introduced me to the joys of cycling as a kid and that I am able to still ride with him today.
STELLA CARDENAS daughter of STEPHANY CAVATONI GM competed in her first swim meet with the Davis Aquamonsters this weekend finishing second in the 25M Free and third in the 25M Back. She also participated in the relay team for 6 and under. She did an awesome job and even used the starting block for the first time!
MICHELLE VALENTI M&M just arrived back from doing media coverage for Team ViaSat at the Race Across America. They killed it! Averaging 22.24 mph, they came in 2nd place. Check out the photos on the ViaSat Racing Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/ViaSat-Racing/123151281053738?ref=ts
CHUAN HU (Technical Manager)from the China office and LILY ZHANG (Foundation Tester) were hiking in Tibet. The blue sky, green water, snowing mountains and the Active logo we found on a door of a traditional Tibet house are breath-taking. We traveled for more than 1,000 KM in 3 days. We saw the most beautiful place in China.
This Saturday, ELAINE BERGERON (Industry Manager, Sports), SUE HINKLE (Sr. Account Manager, Strategic Accounts), JANEAN NATION (Account Manager, Sports), and BRET HARRIS (Sr. Account Manager, Strategic Accounts) enjoyed one of their best DNF’s ever at City Chase San Diego. It was a gorgeous day in downtown, and the challenges were fantastic! While 10 complete challenges were necessary to finish, both teams tapped out at 4pm (after six hours of chasing) just shy of the goal. That aside, it was a great event and fun was had by all! BRET THIS IS JUST NOT A GOOD LOOK FOR YOU BUT THE SOCKS ARE COOL!
ROB POWELL, MATT BECKMAN, JESSIE GIVENS, BREE KULIS & LARKIN GEYER completed the Camp Pendleton 10k Mud run on Saturday morning in a stunning time of 1:34:37 (placing in the top half of all teams). The new Active.com tech Ts survived the mud and we did too (thanks Arch!). Despite the team getting cold feet in the days leading up and attempting to sell our team race slot – only to have no one biting to buy it, fun was had by all. Highlights include: Jessie face planting in one of the easier sections of mud, the river currents sweeping Larkin away at a swifter pace than most, Bree jumping in as an alternate the day prior, Matt envying the marines who were hoisting women over barriers at a furious rates while swallowing gallons of mud and Rob turning on the heat in the last obstacle/Marine crawl through dirty water (aka “mud”) resulting in self induced bloody knees and stomach burns.
