4th of July Weekend

This holiday weekend at the height of summer racing season was a success for several of our female athletes.

Tera Moody competed in the 25th Fifth Season 8K in Cedar Rapids, IA, placing first in 27:08 with tough competition against second place finisher Rachel Marchand, who's run mid-15:00 for 5K and has run a low 26:00 on this course.

The end of a busy week spent moving into a new apartment together culminated with Christina Overbeck and Alona Banai racing in the Community Bank of Elmhurst 4 on the 3rd 4-miler. Both women were pleased with their results: Christina tied for 3rd place in 23:41 while Alona finished in 24:48. Both women were quite pleased with their times and feel optimistic about their upcoming races and the potential to qualify for the U.S. Olympic Marathon Team Trials at the 2010 Chicago Marathon in October.
