It’s been a busy summer for the race team, with teammates running all over the state and the country. Katelynn Williams started out the season with a win at the Madison Twilight 5k at the end of May. In June, two members of the race team, Ariel Webber and Megan Herrick toughed out one of the hottest Grandma’s marathons on record. In August, Gabi Anzalone won the Movin’ Shoes Full Moon 5k and set a new course record of 16:49. Teammates Marie Peterson and Ariel Webber also competed, taking 4th and 6th, respectively. Karlye Wolff, Janie Winston, and Marie Peterson traveled to Hilbert, WI, for the Cheesehead half-marathon and 5k — Karlye took 2nd in the half marathon, setting a personal record, and Marie took 2nd in the 5k. On August 26th, Gabi Anzalone competed in her home state of Michigan to take 3rd in The Crim Festival 10 mile with an overall time of 56:16. That same weekend, Haley Johnson ran through the night with a mixed gender team out in Oregon for Hood to Coast — the team took 3rd in their division. On Labor Day weekend, Eileen McGuine won the WI Cow Chip Classic 10k in her hometown of Sauk Prairie, and Taryn Shank took 2nd in the Lake Country Half Marathon (Oconomowoc, WI).
