Husky Triathletes Run The Seattle Marathon

 
 

Despite some chilly weather and hazy conditions creating potential air quality issues, four intrepid triathletes took to the streets of Seattle to test themselves at the marathon and half marathon distances.

Benjamin Palacios and Ye Tian ran the full marathon. Benjamin covered the 26.2 miles in a speedy 3:26:48, with Ye close behind in 3:35:07.

New team members Anne Clark and Alexa Meins competed at the half marathon distance. Anne ran a well-paced race with even splits for the front and back halves for a final time of 1:44:32; and Alexa showed all her hard work on the track is paying off, finishing in a time of 2:48:32.

Congratulations guys!
