RECAP: SAC Members Triumph at Victoria Marathon & Snohomish River Run Half
Sunday October 11th 2015
GoodLife Fitness Victoria Marathon, Canada / Snohomish, WA
Sunday October 11th was a victorious day for several Seattle Club members who completed their first full marathon race in Victoria, Canada and half-marathon at the Snohomish River Run. After joining the marathon training program offered by Kendra Kainz, Wellness Director and Running Coach back in June, these members spent the last 12-16 weeks training and preparing both physically and mentally for the challenge ahead. The hard work paid off! Each had a successful race with great individual finishing times!
In Victoria, the SAC Team dominated the team category with a first place finish. The Seattle Athletic Club would like to acknowledge Thomas Blair, Jennifer Gallagher, Yesh Ganta, Shayla Mulvey, and Linda Perkins on their accomplishments. Special congrats to
Jennifer Gallagher on qualifying for the Boston Marathon and placing 10th in her age division!
We also congratulate Ryan Tennent and Karla Kucera-Clark on completing their first half-marathon (13.1 miles) with great finishing times! You’ve accomplished a lot!
