Weekend Update (February 16 and 17): Record Setters

It was a weekend for the record books on the track, with two club records for the men. Lucas Stalnaker crushed the club record in the 3000, running 8:11.73 at the University of South Carolina Open, which was a 2 second PR. Lucas had some pacing help early, but he was totally solo the second half of the race and lapped almost the entire field. 

Daniel Trettel broke the club record in the 800, running 1:53.63 at the Penn State Tune Up. Daniel got caught up in traffic at the start and was not able to get running room for the first 200, causing him to go out slower than he intended, but he was able to run relatively even pace throughout.

The women also got in the action, with Liz getting the win in the 1000 at the Princeton Invitational in 3:02.72, which is the second fastest time in club history. Liz was totally solo the entire race, and had been sick all week, so that was an extremely impressive performance.
