The race schedule has been packed this year with Collective members competing in events in WNC and beyond nearly every weekend. This week was no different.
Brent Schouler made his post-marathon return to racing with a win at the Run for Holland 10k in Spruce Pine. He will spend the summer hitting the roads and working on speed before taking another crack at 26.2 in the fall.
In Philadelphia, Chass Armstrong raced the Broad Street Run 10 Miler for the second year in a row. His 53:44 result was off of his goal, but he’s excited to jump back into training and ramp up for a good summer and fall.
Caleb Masland has been racing himself back into a very respectable level of fitness this spring. It’s fun to watch him improve every time he pins on a race number. His most recent effort was a win at the Carolina Brewsfest Half Marathon in 1:13:09.
Also - Shout-outs are in order for two Wedge Run regulars who posted impressive performances last week. At the Legacy Run Half Marathon a rich prize purse brought out a competitive women’s field. Kate Schwartz made strong moves in the hilly second half to earn the win and a nice payday. Out in California, on one of the most strikingly beautiful courses in the country, Arek Robinson set a massive 10+ minute PR of 2:39:22 to place second in the Avenue of the Giants Marathon. It’s great to see your hard work pay off, Kate and Arek!
