New PR’s and another 100 Days Finished
This past weekend marked a huge feat for two Migonis Multisport athletes, Emily Zipprich and Elyssa Rosenbaum. They both set new 1/2 marathon personal best times at the Rock ‘n’ Roll DC event in Washington, DC on Saturday. Emily improved her best time by over 5 minutes while Elyssa went an amazing 7 minutes faster than her previous best time for the 1/2 marathon distance. Emily finished in a time of 1:39:05 which was good enough for 608 overall. Her pace was a blazing 7:34 for 13.1 miles. Elyssa finished in a time of 1:41:33 which was a stellar 7:45 pace. Her place was 801 out of over 12,000 racers in the 1/2 marathon. Fantastic job ladies and congratulations on a great start to the 2017 racing season.
In other Migonis Multisport news, Matt Toporowski became the third member of the 100 days cycling challenge this season. Matt started the 100’s days way back in December and managed to ride at least one hour each day for 100 consecutive days. He did some outside, but the majority were done inside on the trainer. His fitness improved by leaps and bounds on the bike while lowering his heart rate, increasing his power and smiling much of the way. Matt is currently training for the Ironman 70.3 Chattanooga race in May with the hopes of qualifying for the 70.3 World Championships that will be held on that very same course in September. Well done Matt and good luck in 2017! You are well on your way to a great season.
