Podium weekend

Podium finishes for several Janes this weekend! Ingrid took home top honors from the LA Marathon, earning 1st in her age division, and being the 3rd overall open finisher in a personal-best time of 2:55.28! Her training and recent races have showcased her strength, and she was able to put it all together on race day, averaging 6:45 minute miles over the course.

At the Newport Beach Spirit Run, Mireya and Gwendolyn placed 2nd and 3rd, running 39:04 and 39:31, while Tania and Judy took 3rd and 4th in the open mile, running 5:27 and 5:34!

Daman also raced in the 5k at the Spirit Run, rounding out our 5 scoring members to earn points in the Grand Prix Series. In Redondo Beach, Julia used the St. Patty’s Day 5k course as a speedy workout, running 17:36, and leading a 1-2-3- finish for the team, with Cambria and Kirsten taking 2nd and 3rd. We also had action on the track this weekend; at the University of Redlands Invitational, Grace took on the collegiate competitors and placed 2nd in the 3000m, running 10:42.

Next weekend is the always exciting Carlsbad 5000m, where our championship Master’s team will take on a tough field of Masters runners from all over the country!
