Thank you for your continued support. There are a lot of guys out there (me included) who recently graduated from college who would like to continue to run and race for a post-collegiate team. Most of us aren't all stars, rather, citizen runners with full time jobs who enjoy one another's company while training. We’re all part of the 40 hour work week and the DC rat race, but all of us ultimately want to get faster and faster…and faster.
Below is proof that this training group is working. These are the top times for each person in each distance they raced this year. It is remarkable how many people have PR’d in each distance over the past 12 months and I would argue that the support we give one another is a huge factor in obtaining these personal bests. GRC even has a token Ironman in Matias and token UltraMan in Dane!
Having others to run with is key and I believe if we keep it up we’ll only get faster and faster. I’m hoping to have an army of runners to train with on weekend runs as we push through winter and on into spring. Who is with me? Happy Running in 2008!
