FLASH: Grandmaster Marathon domination

It's been too long since the last post and the results have piled up so if you are curious, click the individual results tab to look them up.

We'll start with a clean slate from here on out...

We had some amazing performances from our grandmasters this weekend:

In Richmond, Weems made his marathon debut and clocked a 3:12:30, crushing a BQ despite battling lingering injuries.  Dorothy ran 3:34:40 and won her AG by 10+ minutes!!!

Meanwhile, earlier this morning on the streets of Philadelphia, the ageless one, Tunde ran a PR, breaking 3 hours for the first time ever...2:59:12!!

 Out west, our favorite Finnish Strider, Pekka Stenholm toed the line at the Saltair Half Marathon in Salt Lake City in wind and snowy conditions.  Times were quite slow as expected but he still finished 13th in 1:24:12.  Looking forward to seeing him and the family next weekend!
