Race Reports: NYC Marathon, Boundary Bay Marathon, & First Call Veterans Day Marathon
Running at the TCS New York Marathon on November 2nd was Tim L, Fay W and Marinus W. Â Brutally cold winds did not deter our 3 members from finishing this iconic race from Staten Island to Central Park and in the process run through the 5 NYC boroughs. Â Â Our three membersÂ were a part of history. Â This year’s NYC Marathon had 50,564 finishers, making this the largest marathon ever.
Closer to home, our Tracy M raced in the MacDonalds Boundary Bay Marathon in Delta on the same day. Â (Yes, the chain famous for its Big Mac was the title sponsor of this Try Events marathon). Â This beautiful gravel ocean side trail offered wonderful ocean views despite the cold winds.
Six days later, Tracy M, was at it again. Â This time at the First Call Veterans Day Marathon in Bothell, WA on Saturday, November 8th. Â “It was a chilly start with lots of fog but within an hour the fog burned off, the temperature rose a bit and the sun came out. Â It was absolutely beautiful along the Sammamish River Trail and we had a great run and really fun day. Â This was the sixth, and last, of this year’s First Call marathon series”. Â Thanks for the report Tracy.
Congrats Fay, Marinus, Tim & Tracy.
