“Nancy” Challenge Results

 In Uncategorized

I learned something on Saturday… For those of you who didn’t know, we moved the location of the finals of the Challenge to the Santa Monica High School Track. Earlier in the week, I went out and ran the 400m at the track – found out it is 12-15% faster than our 400m run at the gym. So, I thought that all of our finals times would automatically be that much faster (the prelims were not at the track.) Well, this simply wasn’t the case (even though most people did make significant improvements)… a couple of things I didn’t consider – weather (wind and rain) and an unfamiliarity with the environment (lack of the “home field advantage”.)
In any case, there were some AMAZING performances on Saturday! Our top three most improved – Kevin Daily at 49%, John Westwood at 33.8% and Asim at 30.8%. One thing you all should know about Kevin… he practiced EVERY day for the past 8 weeks… he came into the gym for 5-10 minutes just to practice overhead squats… and his persistence paid off – he looked like a different person overhead squatting on Saturday! Congratulations also go out to our top 3 men (Jeremy Goodlet, Ryan Vaughn and Chris Devlin) and top 3 women (Shirley Brown, Gretchen Helt, and Shelley T!)
