Two runners were out sick, one runner was out of the country (Dicia Wahl has been on a two week mission trip to India), but the six runners who ran represented Grace with flying colors! The three men ran their first 10k and each took home a medal. Richard Mooney place 6th overall (of 226 finishers), 1st place in his age bracket with a time of 42:38. Trenton Loomis was 7th overall, 2nd in his age bracket with a time of 44:20. Jean Louis Martinez was 21st overall, 3rd in his age group with a time of 48:41.
The women also performed well. Ally Rackley finished as the 20th woman finisher in the 5k (out of 150 women), 1st in her age group with a time of 27:06. Liz Pedersen was 24th woman, 3rd in her age group at 27:53. And Denise VanBeek ran her first 5k in 34:26 to place 13th out of 17 in her age group and 91st out of 150 for women.
Congratulations and health and safe travels to our missing runners.
