One of the premier events on the LRC-Racing competition calendar went down this past weekend.  LRC sent 11 athletes to line up against the region’s best, 4 women and 7 men to the start line in Millenium Park along Michigan Lake in Chicago.  Props to all runners for their efforts representing the team at an incredible event, but here are the highlights:

Women’s Team 9th OA

While these folks were taking it easy on the roads, the Brians of the team were getting down and dirty at the Nebraska Trail held for the 11th year at Platte River State Park.  With the addition of a half marathon this year, both Brian Kelley and Brian Wandzilak stuck with the traditional 12k.  Brian W came away with overall win and Brian K was 3rd OA and 1st Masters.
