We had some great racing this past weekend at Pat’s Run and down in Rocky Point. We also want to give a shout out to Adela Riehle who raced the Star Wars Dark Side Challenge in FL. The challenge consists of running a 10K on one day and a ½ marathon the next day while wearing an appropriate Star Wars costume! Adela ran the 10K in 1:30 dressed as the Emperor. She followed that up with a 2:40 ½ marathon dressed as an Imperial Commander!
