Mark Husted added to the victory with a win the 400m 49.08 at CMS Last Chance Qualifier. Ruth Waller doubled on the day with an 800m 2:22.06 and 200m 28.943. Tim joined Ruth in the 200m distance running a 23.75. Link to official results will be up soon.
Reminder that a race schedule is up on the Schedule & Results page. In preparation for the summer season make sure you get with Matt Kempton and TR Pursell about buying a uniform and shirt.
“We will finish the race.” That is what’s written inside more than 100 pairs of precisely arranged shoes worn in the Boston Marathon. The brilliantly designed front cover of Boston Magazine May issue had a two-day deadline to create the idea, photo shoot it, and edit it. It actually took 3 days but I don’t think anyone is complaining.
In the coming weeks there will be posters available where all proceeds will go to the One Fund Boston. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information about the posters. You can also support The One Fund at onefundboston.org.

In light of a very stressful last week, we hope that everyone has had a chance to reflect and recover some from the events that have happened. Our thoughts and best wishes go out to all the victims and friends and families of those who have been hurt physically and emotionally by the poor choices of others. Our daily lives here, will return to mostly normal. Their struggles are just beginning as they recover from their injuries and adjust to a new way of living. One thing that every runner knows is we are some of the toughest people out there! When things are getting tough for you here reflect a little on the past events and run with a little fire inside you.
In a lighter note, I hope everyone has had a chance to check out the forecast for the next few days. Spring is popping it’s head in for a visit! The snow will be melting off the track allowing us to get back at it and rock some workouts. A congrats to Ms. Poland who ran Boston in a time of 3:13.02. Her splits can be found by searching for her here.
Next up is our other training partner Sarah Pizzo. She will be taking a trip out to race the Eugene Marathon in Oregon on Sunday morning. Best of luck to her and other friends of ours who are racing it!
Live updates on the incident that happened today at 2:50pm at the Boston Marathon can be found here. Our thoughts and prayers to go all at Boston. We thank all of the support that acted without hesitation or selfishness to help all the victims. We are thankful to hear that our fellow teammates Annie (finished 3:13.02) and Angelina (there on commentary assignment) are safe.
