We had an amazing weekend of racing last week! Kerry Phelan ran the Clarence Demar Marathon in Keene, NH, and qualified for Boston with her first marathon! Greg Niforos ran the Adirondack Marathon in Schroon Lake, NY, smashing his previous marathon time by 17 minutes! Jon Marcus ran the Berlin Marathon and has now completed six out of the seven "World Marathon Majors." And Bobby McDonough ran a PR at the Dublin Marathon (yes, Ireland!), where he placed second in his division and also became the first Banger to get our team name announced while crossing the finish line in another country, and I know this is a very specific first, but it's still pretty awesome. Mark Zurlo and Patrick McMahon ran the very last Race Cancer Summer Series 5k of the summer, and now it's officially fall. Patrick also ran the 12th annual Wilmington Half Marathon in Wilmington, MA last weekend!

We are volunteering at a water stop for the B.A.A. Half Marathon next weekend (Sunday 10/9)! This is the second year we've had this opportunity and it was great to have a big group of Bangers out there last year. More info here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1826671370899558/
