The women's team finished a solid 7th out of 21 teams with Caitlyn Clark running a quick 17:06, followed closely byKatrina Gravel (17:36), Amanda Wright (18:53), Laura Rudd (19:01), Strong Sisu Project debuts of 19:14 and 20:34 by Chenice Branquinho and Linda Fortunato, and a great 21:14 effort by Fawn Krumpelbeck. This puts the women's team in sixth place in the USATF New England Grand Prix Standings.
The rest of the weekend featured other great races for the Sisu Project, including Garry Cuneo finishing 2nd place at the Flag Day 5K in Newburyport, Maartje Bastings finishing second in her age group at the White Mountain Triathlon, a half ironman in Franconia Notch, New Hampshire, Kacey Hill running a PR 1:13:47 at the Moon Pie 10 Mile Run in Bell Buckle, Tennessee, Larry Fowle convincingly winning the David Curley Memorial 5K in Haverhill, and strong showings by Mike Grasela and Chenice Branquinho at the Fairhaven Father's Day 10K Road Race.
It is with great excitement that would like to announce a group run, swim, and picnic at Walden Pond in Concord, MA on Sunday, June 30 at 8:00am. It will be a great opportunity to do something fun to kick off summer. Parking at Walden Pond costs $5.00, so it is advisable to carpool. The Sisu Project Facebook Group is a great way to find a ride there! If you are not on the Sisu Project, this is also a great chance to check us out. We look forward to seeing you! Directions are available here.
With several new faces, we are excited to welcome our new Sisu Project runners! We are more than happy to have them wearing the Sisu Blue.
