The DTC had a busy weekend racing in competitions held in Colorado, California, and Arizona.
Nick Borne raced the open 400m at the Air Force Invitational on Friday in Colorado Springs. Nick paced himself for a two lap race but the actual distance was 1.3 laps. As a result he was not able to run with the full intensity that he was capable of running, but his 50.3 was good enough to get him ranked in the conference. Nick is now ranked in both the 400m and 800m! Great job Nick!
Heidi Hendrick competed in the USA Pentathlon Olympic Qualifier 2 on Saturday in San Luis Obispo, CA. Heidi had a strong comeback after the disappointing Qualifier 1 session last month. She strong performances all around with 2nd place finish in swimming, 7th in fencing, and her laser run time average was faster than her 1 mile time trial although her competition was twice the distance! Heidi's Olympic campaign unfortunately came to an end when her horse refused to complete the show jumping course which netted her an irrecoverable 0 points. Great job out there Heidi. What an incredible comeback!
Natosha Rogers ran the USATF XC National Championships in San Diego, CA. Natosha took command of the race at the 8k mark and put in a massive kick for the win. Great job Natosha! The comeback is real!
Matthew Jackson raced his first marathon at the Rock n' Roll Arizona Marathon in Tempe, AZ where he ran a Boston Qualifying time of 2:49:22! Excellent job Matt!
