TODD PREECE, IT Director, tried an endurance experiment on Saturday. He did a 4-mile trail run to the start line of the SunStrides Lake Hodges 5K trail run, ran the race placing 19th overall and 6th in age division, and then ran the 4-miles back to his car. On Sunday he capped off the weekend (and his legs) with a 21-mile, 2500ft of climbing mountain bike ride from Black Mountain to Lake Hodges with friends.
KRISTI NYBRO is an Active Events Project Manager working out of Austin, Texas. I ran my first half marathon this weekend here in Austin. It was the 3M half marathon and it was a surprisingly warm 73 degrees and very humid! Arch hooked me up with some Active wear, so I wanted to share the photo.
BROOKE KIRKPATRICK with a group skinned up Jone's Pass (2300 vertical feet) and skied down. This Saturday was one of those amazing Colorado Blue Bird Days!
ANTHONY VALENTINO, Account Executive – Higher Education (San Diego), took daughter Jade for her first ever snowboarding experience. She did great – despite an acrimonious relationship with the chair lift.
MATTHEW HENRY (Bothell, WA) suffered another lopsided defeat in hockey, playing with his Sentinels last night. The score ended 6-1, but we did keep it close for a good part of the game. We had our first practice of the season the night before so … Maybe we were tired? Yeah. That's it. But it was all still fun, especially the part where he was told to "cool it" by the ref as the game started to get chippy. He also learned to take a hit from someone skating wildly out of control. That was fun.
MEGAN HOLLSTEDT, Creative Lead Burnaby found some snow and sunshine at Sun Peaks recently. Getting ready for the ActiveX trip to Whistler coming up at the end of February, fingers crossed I can make it!
PHIL GRAHAM, Senior Sales Exec did the Kahtoola Bigfoot Snowshoe Race Saturday morning in Midway, Utah. It was a gorgeous, sunny morning with a start temperature of 9 degrees fahrenheit. I ran it with my good friend, Thierry Sorhaitz (#14). That was our intimidating tough-guy look that clearly didn't work! I realized after getting there that although I've got some very nice snowshoes, they're not racing snowshoes. I finished fourth in the 10K with a time of 57:35.
