Running isn’t canceled!!! Signup and stay motivated during the pandemic!
Race options were limited in 2020 so when a hilly half marathon presented itself as the only option, Jon went for it! Jon ran a new PR of 1:24:04 (a 45 sec PR). Soon after, he ran a virtual Turkey Trot 10k in 37:15, running another 44 sec PR!
Just like Jon, Alyssa saw the hilly half as her one opportunity to race this year. Despite being 55 (sorry Alyssa!), she ran a new LIFETIME PR, breaking the sub 1:40 barrier for the first time in her life! She continues to train hard, recover harder and be smart as she proves she’s like a fine wine, better with age!
Dimitri has had his eyes on a BQ for quite sometime. So when COVID hit, it was a challenge to find a race. When he did, he sure did capitalize! Dimitri ran the Harrisburg Marathon, qualified for Boston with a new 18+ minute PR running perfect 1:39/1:39:18 splits!
The Kickasso runners came to race on a cold and windy day to kick off the 2021 season. Larissa, Jon, Alyssa, Laura, Deanne and Matt raced in the Inaugural 5 mile race in Schenectady. Larissa, Alyssa and Jon all ran lifetime PRs for the distance! Deanne ran an impressive negative split and won her age group. Congrats to all!!!
