Race Recap: Lake Sammamish Half Marathon

The team competed in their first half marathon of the season at the Lake Sammamish Half last weekend. The weather was absolutely GORGEOUS out and it led to a wonderful day of racing. We has strong performances across the board with lots of PRs and several members who just missed their PR. This was a great confidence boost for our members who are headed to Boston in just a few short weeks!

The team was also lucky enough to have their own personal cheerleader along the course. Dr. Laura from Experience Momentum ran along the course backwards cheering for everyone as they ran by. Thank you for all of your support Laura!

We also had a few members racing out of the state. Liz and Rebecca showed extra dedication to their running by fitting in half marathons on their vacations - nice job ladies!
