Bangers Blog: June 23, 2016

The Bangers are killing it so far this summer!!! 

Jen Daley, Cassie Yeancades, and Ryan Wexler all completed the JP Morgan Corporate Challenge a couple of weeks ago. Ryan then also ran the Walkway Half Marathon just a few days later! Em Grover and Jen Daley both ran in the most recent RACE Cancer Summer Series 5k. Last weekend, Meghan Burns ran the second annual Gorges Ithaca half marathon in Ithaca, NY! Tess Harvey and Erik Hinrichsen both ran the Mount Washington Road Race, with an insane 4,000 feet of elevation gain over 7 miles. Liz Sweeting ran the Queens 10K, and Kevin Koncilja ran the Johnny Miles Marathon in Nova Scotia! And finally, Laura Duffy competed in and totally rocked the Patriot Half-Ironman, her first half-Ironman!

SATURDAY RUNS: We still need hosts for these! Your theme doesn't have to be anything crazy or super creative - it can be as simple as a route you want to run or someplace you want to go for breakfast at the end. Sign up and promote!
-This Saturday is the long-awaited 26x1 mile Club Challenge Relay at the Tufts track! The race starts at 8:30 AM. If you're running, please show up EARLY for your leg! If you're not running, feel free to come watch and cheer, it will be a great time!
-Following the race, starting around 1 pm, the residents of 30 Parsons Street are hosting a BBBQ (Bangers BBQ)! All are welcome (whether you ran the 26x1 or not), please let Jamison know if you're coming and what you can bring!
-AND, if you want to spend even more time with your favorite running friends, come to the Last Drop on Saturday night for Tess Pendery's goodbye party, as she is moving away to Detroit in July :(((( We'll miss you Tess!!
Our next Grand Prix race is Sasquatch, on July 9th. Spots are going fast, so sign up soon! Let Jen Daley know if you have signed up, since she's coordinating the party bus.
The next Grand Prix race after Sasquatch is the Brighton Bangers (third annual!) 5k, on Saturday, September 17th. Then we have the Smuttynose Half Marathon and 5k (after-party on the beach featuring Smuttynose beer!) in Hampton Beach, NH on Sunday, 10/2. For the complete list check out the race roster:
