Boston or Bust

Boston Marathon weekend a big one for the Newton tribe. Leading up to the big day, Newton shoes were flying off the shelves at the  pre-race expo.

On Boston Marathon Monday,  Newton was well represented among the 27,000 runners, including Newton athlete Bob Weiner, who ran 2:29:13 and placed second in the men 45-49 age group.

And at his 18th Boston Marathon, Dr. Mark Cucuzella, owner of Two Rivers Treads Center for Natural Running, ran his 18th Boston Marathon last weekend, finishing in a time of 2:37:00 (placing 164th overall and 15th in his age group).

We’d also love to give a HUGE congratulations to Customer Service queen Erin Gehlsen, who ran a 3:57:09!

Race Recap from MORF Racing

Vanessa Carmean of MORF Racing will kick off her 2011 racing season in a few weeks with the XTERRA Pacific Championships in Santa Cruz, CA, and in the meantime, wrote this recap of her stellar 2010 season.

“I’ve been running and racing in Newtons since 2007, but last year was my first season racing in the Distance Performance Racers,” says Vanessa. “I had some very fast runs (for me) and  was really pleased with the improvement in my run times at Boulder Stroke and Strides (one of several PR’s last summer) and the Colfax Half Marathon so I was really happy with the Distance shoes!”

“We Love you Here in Iraq!”

A few weeks ago, CW2 Ronnie Hicks  took the overall win at the U.S. Army Reserve 10.3 km Birthday Run with a 37:53 in Baghdad, Iraq.

“My time was not blazing fast, but what do you expect after three weeks off for R&R (vacation)?” said Hicks. “I was 15 seconds-per-mile slower than usual! But the Terra Momentus were excellent choice for these conditions! Thanks for recommending them!Thanks for the support you guys provide and we love you here in Iraq!”

    Hi,

    I work with the Dana Point Turkey Trot, the 4th largest turkey trot in the nation. We’ve just announced our open registration for this year’s biggest turkey trot to date. Would you open to share this news with your blog readers? Can I shoot you over information and a press release to take a look at? Thanks!

    Best,
