Repost: Congratulations Addie, Maggie, Lauren and Marlena!

Clockwise from top right: Addie Bracy, Maggie Callahan, Lauren McKenna and Marlena Preigh
I copied this post verbatim from Randy's subblog. I didn't want anybody to miss this. Our runners had such a great weekend, I wanted everybody to see it. These ladies work really hard in the gym, on the road, and on the track, and I love seeing these crazy results! Every time I see a race report from any of them, I can't imagine running that fast.

We want to acknowledge four of our sports performance members, all runners, who achieved personal bests this weekend.

First our pros: Addie Bracy (World Team Member, National Champion and National Trail Runner of the Year the last two years in a row for all three honors!!) took on her first 50 mile trail ultra this weekend at the Behind the Rocks Ultra in Moab taking second place female and third place overall. Maggie Callahan was in Chicago at the Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle 8k leading in the Hudson Elite squat with a 7th place finish, along the way running a 20 second personal best 5k split.

Our two High Schoolers: senior Lauren McKenna knocked 3 seconds off her previous best 1600 meters at the Broomfield Shootout. Junior Marlena Preigh traveled to Arizona and took 9 seconds off her previous best 1600, handily winning the Nike Chandler Rotary Invitational Elite division.

We know first hand how hard you all work and the juggling you have to do to fit it all in to your busy schedules. Thanks for choosing Barbell Strategy to support your efforts, it's really exciting to see that hard work pay off!
