Congrats to Sarah Gabriel who improved her marathon time by 16 minutes. Sarah was a regular long runs and was consistently seen putting in 110%. Her efforts paid off as she ran a 3:40:34 in the Philadelphia Marathon in November.
Chloe and Jason hosted two long runs this year. The first time they served delicious salted caramel whiskey cinnamon buns. They followed up with the most amazing apple cheddar scones, pumpkin bread and apple crisp. If that wasn’t enough they brought a homemade pumpkin cheesecake to the holiday party. A special shoutout to Jason’s Aunt
