Last fall, five of our Angel runners decided to train for and run a half marathon. Coach Delaney offered to train them and they began their 19 weeks of training, battling very snowy and cold winter weather.
The runners registered for the Boulderthon Half Marathon and, because of Covid 19, the race went virtual. Our runners pressed on and ran their first, and hopefully not their last, half marathon on April 18 on the Highline Canal.
Sarah Hoffer led the group, finishing with a very respectable 1:50, followed closely by Claire Ely with a 1:53 and not far behind were Charlie Hite and Jane Port, finishing together in just a bit over 2 hours. Kendall Ogin also trained very hard for 15 weeks, but a knee injury while skiing (her other passion) prevented her from racing.
The half marathon turned out to be a perfect pandemic activity! Kudos to these amazing student athletes and Coach Delaney!
