Race Roundup: Is it August already?

Holy moly is it really August? Are we really only a wee bit over a month until Ragnar?? Where did summah go (I’m an east coast guy, gimme a break)??

I’d say this week was slow but these two are not slow at all! Here’s this weeks roundup!!

It seems each week Jaclyn Shockey is in the roundup and, per usual, she’s placing at a race! Jaclyn raced the The 9th Annual Valley Day Races in Conyngham, PA. She said it was “perfect weather for racing! The last time I ran this race was several years ago, & I think this course was slightly different with a lot more rolling hills or at least it felt that way. Very pleased though with today’s results. I clocked a 56:18 (7:02 pace) for an overall female finish & 3rd overall.” You are absolutely killing it each week Jaclyn; amazing!!!

On August 4th, David Houston took on the NYRR Manhattan 7 Mile in Manhattan, NY. Being the humble guy David is he says it was a “hilly course… 7:17 pace during marathon training.” Yeah dude, a  51:00 official time is crushing it, good lord man!! Way to go!!

That’s it…. Ragnar is coming so here’s to all that training you all are getting down with!!
