Phoenix Marathon March 1, 2014

Despite the prediction of lots of rain and wind, we had a few of our chicks representing RC3 this year at the Phoenix Marathon.  Some did the full, some did the half.

We've Got Your Back 5K February 8, 2014

On of our very own chicks, Susan, put together the first annual We've Got Your Back 5K race and a 1 mile fun run/walk benefiting spinal research foundation.

It was a beautiful morning and plenty of our chicks were there to support Susan and to support the cause by running the race and also by volunteering.

Thanks to one of the groups "fast" chicks running along side her and pushing her to do it, Rhonda was able to PR on the 5K finishing at 27:33

RC3 was the winner for largest registered team getting them pizza from Spinato's and a huge bag of GU's for the group.

Everyone had a great time.  There were special guests including Larry Fitgerald (who didn't run but hopefully we will see him run it next year)! Lots of prizes too.

Getting started on M2B 2014 training!

The RC3 chicks love the Mountains to Beach marathon so much we are going back again this year!  Even though we do not live in the middle of the polar vortex, it was a cold morning (and dark)!  Always an adventure with these girls and always happy when the sun finally comes up at the end of our run.

2nd annual RC3 holiday gathering December 2013

We had a great time getting together outside of running for some great food and wrapping gifts for the family we adopted for Christmas.
