Bangers Blog: June 9, 2016

This was a historic week for the Bangers in many ways!!
1) TWO Bangers ran their first ever marathons - Mark Zagata and Bobby McDonough, both at the Maine Black Bear Marathon.
2) And, Bobby ran a Boston qualifying time, becoming only the second Banger ever (after Kylee) to BQ on his first marathon!
3) A bunch of Bangers, including Jen Daley, Patricia Daley, Jonna Green, Alexa Fee, Mark Zurlo, Em Grover, Patrick McMahon, and Kevin Koncilja, ran the Newport 10-Miler on Sunday.
4) Extra big congratulations to Alexa Fee, who got engaged at the Newport finish line!!
5) Leandre Mansur joined the Bangers last week and ran her first ever 5k on Sunday as well!
6) Finally, we had a record number of 47 Bangers out at our Wednesday run! See attached photo documenting the awesomeness.
