PRTC Weekly: 02/22/2017 (New Club Record/LDR of the Year and More)

New Club Record / LDR of the Year

This week we offer a belated congratulations to newly signed PRTC member, Colin Leak, on a fantastic marathon debut in Houston last weekend. Colin’s expertly paced 2:18.16 earned 8th overall and 3rd American in a very competitive field. Colin couldn’t have joined PRTC at a better time, as his result is good for a  club record! His mark improves upon Edward Callinan’s 2003 Philly Marathon in 2:21.22. Colin currently works at Philadelphia Runner’s Glen Mills location. A hearty welcome and kudos on a race well run!
Also of note, we were pleased to learn Margaret Vido was named LDR Female Athlete of the Year by Mid-Atlantic USATF. This was awarded for her great running results in 2016 including qualifying for the olympic marathon trials. Nice work Margaret!
