-The Fool's Dual Half Marathon and 5K took place on Sunday in quite possibly some of the most ridiculously intense conditions possible - icy snow topped off with 50+mph winds! The Bangers SWEPT the event with Erik Hinrichsen winning the half marathon, and Bobby McDonough winning the 5K and placing second in the half marathon. Ruby Perlmutter, Jenna Castro, Jeremy Shaw, Tess Harvey, and Seth Wolfman also braved the snow to finish the half (Jenna, Jerry) and 5K (Ruby, Tess, Seth).

-Sarah Kruyer set her 10-mile PR at the Cherry Blossom 10-miler in Washington, DC!
-Jonna Green ran her FIRST half marathon at the Duxbury Half last weekend!
