Congratulations to all Phoenix runners who ran the DDO 5km race. Fast times by all!
Track workouts are paying off!
Congratulations to Elizabeth Mokrusa who ran the Défi Boréal Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue 10k. Liz is on her way back after a long foot injury and clocked in a 41:03 finishing 8th overall and first woman. If you recall, Liz ran a comeback 10k race in May and finished with a time of 43:53. She has managed to cut back almost 3 minutes in less than 3 months, my guess is that she will sub 40 minutes by years end! Liz has a 10k PB of 38:14 set in 2013 which I am betting she will improve in the coming years. Way to go Liz!
