Racing is just more fun with your teammates and it's even more fun when you dominate the podium! At the Downtown 10K, the Bones cleaned up and took home $325 in winnings with Adron (32:01) and Sarah (38:33) taking 1st on each side and Jonnie (34:35) taking 2nd on the men's side. Joe was 6th in 36:34.
In an attempt to remind themselves why they no longer run in circles, Erin and Myke toed the line for the last Mini Meet of the season hosted by GMAA. Erin rocked the 3K in 11:30 and Myke ran the 800 in 2:13, moving up from about 8th with 400 to go to just getting edged for the win. Mature racing at its finest!
The fact that I'm just getting around to writing this in September isn't a particularly accurate reflection of how long Erin has been running with Olde Bones. She reached out a year ago and we've spent a lot of time on the roads together since then.
Erin ran cross country and track for Elizabethtown College in PA. After college, she worked as an Assistant Coach for her team as she made her way into the post-collegiate world. Flash forward a few years through graduate school, a move to Vermont and the birth of her daughter Lillian and Erin is back on the roads again.
Whip fast at the 5K/10K distance, Erin's focus right now is on the half marathon and she's considering Philly for the late fall.
