BDP is in the thick of race season, evident in the depth of this past weekend’s events. Kicking it off, Kathryn raced the Birch Bay Road Race 5k, and though she was in the hunt for a PR, paced by Kristen Schafer, the weather made it difficult (severe rain storms, 40 mph gusts…), despite, Kathryn nabbed a 1st Place Overall finish! Full results can be found HERE!Later that morning David, Derek and Hazel toed the start of the Honeywagon 1/2 Marathon (same conditions), and just killed it. David was 1st Overall, shattering the CR by 10 minutes; there followed Casey Barten who helped pace Derek to a PR (succeeded) taking 2nd and 3rd! Hazel was 1st F/5th Overall, bettering her CR from the year previous. The 1/2 Marathon and 4 Mile races start and finish in Riverside Park in Everson, WA.

Despite it being just a few weeks out from the Chuckanut 50k, Shawn was top 10 and 1st Masters! The Everett Half was hosted by our friends, Snohomish Running Company, and starts and finishes at Marina Park, running along the Everett waterfront and over the historic SR-529 drawbridge into Marysville before it brings you back for a Glory Lap around the park. Snohomish Running Company knows how to host a great event; post race there was massage, oven-fired pizza and awesome other little goodies. Many agreed that the race would have been a PR landmark, had the wind been a tad more kind.
