Congratulations to Mary Goyens, long time Phoenix members and SUPER Grandma (8 grandkids and counting?). Mary ran the Montreal Hypothermic Half Marathon and still trains weekly at the Vaudreuil track. Wonder if she has a triathlon in the works for this summer?
Congratulions to everyone who participated at the Annuel Défi Hivernal de L'Île-Bizard. A good way to start the racing season. Kuddos to Antoine and Dvorah who both placed second in their AG and Albert who placed third. Liz finished second woman overall! Good job!
Congratulations to Dvorah Finestone who started of 2018 with the Miami Marathon. Good job Dvorah and kuddos on your 4th place finish in your AG. Great looking shoes! ;-)
First race of the year, a 5k on an indoor 200m track in Vaudreuil. I went in with no expectations, but was hoping to sub 20 minutes which I was able to do in 19:06. With no speed work to speak of in the last few months, it's a nice start to the season. I was able to run an even 3:49 pace throughout which is exactly how I want to run my races this year, even pace. Happy New Year!
My last race of the season was a Half Marathon on an indoor track in Terrrebonne. It wasn't planned, but I got a free bib so couldn't pass it up. I ran an even race based on my run commuting pace of the last few weeks at 4:12 pace, my objective was to run sub 1h30 which is what I did and good enough for 4th place overall. 64 times around the track, it was fun but I'd much rather run outside! Pictured here with a few friends. I also tried out a new pair of Nike Zoom, a fun and fast shoe.
