Here We Are!

Whew! That last race update took FOR-EV-ER to get up! Between the new house, getting settled in at my new job, and just all around being busy, it fell to the wayside. But, Team G Shock did not! In the beginning of August, we officially started training for the Army Ten Miler. We're excited for the race, and want to make sure we are ready!

We running 3-4 times per week, and building up our long runs on Sundays. Its been a lot, but we're feeling good, and excited to keep adding more miles to the bank! We just ran our long run for this week, and we're up to 5 miles - halfway there!

In the meantime we're looking for some races in our new neighborhood, so we'll see what we can find!

Thanks for sticking around!

Event #42 - Bethany Beach Firecracker 5k

Wow, it has been FAR too long since we posted. And this is a very overdue race recap from our 42nd race! We ran the Bethany Beach Firecracker 5k at the end of June (again, this is very overdue!). We were up at the beach for a whole week over the 4th of July with my family, and were excited to get to run with my Dad and my brother, Drew! It was also nice to have some cheerleaders (and photographers) along with us!

This is the 3rd time we've run this race, and it gets better every year! Here are our results:

151st place - Nate Towne - 27:20
208th place - Sara Towne - 29:47
275th place - Joe Ross - 32:51
367th place - Drew Ross - 36:40

We had a great week at the beach with my family, and the race was an added bonus! Here are some pictures we got along the way...

Although we've been absent from the blog, we've still been hard at work prepping for some upcoming Team G Shock adventures! Stay tuned for those!
