Team Studios Central Continues to Shine

As Team Studios Central continues to grow so do our achievements.  As we move closer to our date with the Hollywood Tower of Terror Hotel and the frightful 10-Miler race event on September 29th, 2012 (sold out) members of Team Studios Central (running team) continue to train and reach new heights.  Recently, we celebrated new milestones, personal goals, and race achievements.  With the spring running season in full bloom several local races took to the forefront.  Team Studios Central runners towed the line at these races and attempted to conquer their goals of finishing the race. 

At the top of the list Team SC member Chris Walthers took to the streets of downtown Indianapolis and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway running in the One America Mini Marathon; the largest half marathon in the country.  Chris successfully crossed the finish line to complete his first ever half marathon.  Congratulations Chris!

Team member Amanda North continues to add to her impressive list of race success stories as she completed the More Magazine Women's Half Marathon in New York City's Central Park.  More than 7,200 women joined Amanda making this race the largest women's only half marathon in the country.  Great job Amanda!

Next up is Team SC member Rich Gairing who continues his running prowess.  Rich successfully finished the Run with the Cows Half Marathon in Redding, PA.  Rich also showed us his bravery by signing up for the Goofy and a Half Challenge during Walt Disney World's Marathon Weekend.  The Goofy and a Half Challenge consists of running the Disney World Half Marathon on Saturday and then running the full marathon on Sunday.  Congratulations Rich and good luck with your training leading up to Marathon Weekend!

Lastly, we want to wish Team SC runner Theresa Sheingold good luck as she races in the Geist 5K this Saturday morning, May 19th.  Also, good luck to Chris Walthers who will be running in the Geist Half Marathon just outside of Indianapolis, IN.
