Calgary Marathon Race Weekend

This weekend a group of my athletes take over the streets of Calgary to take in the Calgary Marathon and Half Marathon.

Geoff Hopfner will be tackling the marathon and is looking for a podium finish.  His training has been going really well, and he is determined to under 2:35.  Be sure to get out there to cheer him on.  Geoff is the local favourite.

Kathryn Waslen will be running the half marathon and is also looking for a podium finish,  Her running has steadily improved since last season.   Kathryn aims to crack the 1:24 mark.  Like Geoff, Kathryn is a local favourite.

Bradley Jacobs will be looking to run under 3:15 for the marathon.  Since beginning with the group this year, Brad has improved massively.  Balancing his job as a neurosurgeon has been challenging for Brad, but he is determined to put things on the line come Sunday.

Rhonda Jewett recently joined our ranks, and will be lining up for the 10km.  Rhonda's goal this season is to break the 40 min mark.  If her 5km time trials and interval seasons are an indicator, she will easily accomplish that.

Michael Chui will be using the half marathon as preparation toward his Ironman training.

Good luck guys.  Make us proud!
