Not only did our Director of Operations Stacy Embretson run New York this weekend, but she set a PR of 3:38:44 and qualified for Boston. And she did it all while running as Dorothy. How much fun is that? Here’s what Stacy had to say: “The costume was really the best decision ever as I had people cheering for ‘Dorothy’ the entire race. Such a fun experience!!”
Once again the LA Marathon will host a sizable contingent of Legacy Runners. This amazing group–about 240 strong–has run every single LA Marathon. 24 straight. And 2010 will mark a quarter century of not missing a single edition of the race. Unbelievable. They’ve kicked off their training, and “Legacy” Lou Briones recently sent me this photo of a group of them about to head out for a run at the Rose Bowl. Bravo!
How could you not be moved by this morning’s incredible New York Marathon? Both the men’s and women’s races came down to the last two miles, and Meb Keflizighi’s win makes him the first American to win the race since Alberto Salazar in 1982. Furthermore, there were 6 Americans in the top 10, which bodes well for the future of running in this country. Congratulations to Meb and all the finishers in the New York Marathon, including our own Russ Pillar and Stacy Embretson.
