RMR was represented in all three races in Richmond, Virginia this past weekend. Rachel Ward started off the day in the HCA Virginia 8k. Ward competed well and was able to distance herself from two other women to finish second overall in a time of 26:45. Sallie Ford was up next in the American Family Fitness Half Marathon. Early on Ford found a woman she had run with the year before, and they worked together to keep a solid pace throughout the race. Ford negative split the race, starting around 6:15 pace and ending close to 5:40 pace. Sallie finished 7th in a time of 1:18:25, just 10 seconds off her PR from the year before. Dave Hryvniak was the final harrier to start in the Anthem Richmond Marathon. Hryvniak ran the first half conservatively and felt great through 16-17, but unfortunately the wheels came off after. Dave salvaged a solid effort nonetheless, running 2:34:18 for 9th place. Results can be found below.
