California Racing 10k and 1/2 marathon

One Migonis Multisport athlete laced-up the racing shoes this past weekend. Lauren Pfendler, native of Clinton, NY and now proud resident of Eagle River, AK took time out of her vacation to sunny California to race the Dr. Strange 10k and the Avengers Super Heroes ½ Marathon. Yes, two races in two days. Lauren is no stranger to pushing herself and doing things that others may think are crazy, so the idea of racing two times in two days was something Lauren was excited to do.
In the Dr. Strange race on Saturday Lauren ran a great time of 48:38 for the 6.2 miles. That time was complete with a few stops to take pictures, which makes her 8th place finish in her division and 23rd female place overall look even more impressive. The next day Lauren raced the Avengers Super Heroes ½ marathon and scored another great result. She finished 10th in her division and ran a time of 1:46:32, which was once again complete with a picture stop or two.
Lauren is currently training for the Ironman 70.3 Hawaii event in early June and possibly a few running races prior to that.
Well done Lauren and congratulations!
