It's beginning to feel a lot like Spring...

It was a busy weekend of racing that had a spring-like feel to it. It started off in our Nation's Capital, as a few racing team members competed in the Rock 'N Roll National Marathon/Half. Caroline Bauer continued her PR crushing 2012 campaign with a 1:28:55 in the half, good for 26th place! I know from experience this course isn't as flat as advertised. She is definitely going to be in sub-3:10 shape as she toes the starting line in Hopkinton in less than a month! Meanwhile, Keith Levasseur still coming back from injury hopped into the marathon like it was nothing and ran 2:54:27 for 21st place on the men's side as he begins to set his sights on a big PR in Boston.

Also Saturday morning, our Captain, Carlos Renjifo, and Kevin Ford took part in the 2nd Annual Forget Towson Invitational at UMBC. This low key track meet consisted of a 3k and 4x800m relay with several members of the Georgetown Running Company and Falls Road racing teams. In the 3k, Carlos hung with the big dogs from DC and ran a 20+ second PR with an 8:46.68 for 4th place while Kevin ran a smart, even race in 9:39.35. Carlos then ran a 2:03 split in the 4x800. BEAST!!!

Finally, Phil Lang ran the Germantown, TN half while in Memphis for the Annual RRCA Convention in 1:22:03 for 13th overall and 4th in the M40-44 age group!

Great start to the spring season!!!
