Bangers! Awesome group yesterday! It's finally starting to feel like summer running weather!
Last week Em Grover, Mark Zurlo, and Patrick McMahon all ran the first of the RACE Cancer Summer 5k Series (there are a few more of these on Thursday nights throughout the summer, if anybody's looking for more races)! Congrats Em and Patrick on also setting new personal records at this race. And we have even more PR's, for Jonna Green at the Strides for Teen Success 4-miler and Sierra Parker at the Middlebury Maple Run half marathon!
