The majority of the club's race results and pictures are on our Facebook page. It is much easier to post to FB, along with numerous pictures. Plus, everyone who is a member can post their own pictures and results. For our local events, I will continue to post them here. (Please note that sometimes the race results do not post correctly such as the 2011 Swamp Run. I apologize that they are a " jumbled up mess"
but after numerous attempts at trying to type them on individual lines, I finally gave up.)

If you are on FB but not on the club's FB page, go to Okefenokee Track Club and click "Like".
(I was not able to change the page to Okefenokee Track & Cycling Club
without starting over, but I was able to use our new logo.)

2009 Atlanta Marathon-Thanksgiving Day

Mary Woodruff traveled to Atlanta to participate in the Thanksgiving Day Atlanta Marathon. Mary was disappointed with her 4:20 time, but hey - when your legs cramp and you don't have major hills to train on in Waycross, it's understandable! Atlanta is extremely hilly and they are not "little" hills! The weather was a balmy 40 degrees, great start for a marathon. Cramped legs or not, she still placed 2nd in her age group.

2009 Beach2Battleship Full & 1/2 Iron Distance Triathlon, November 7th

Cheryl Monroe: 12 hr. 50 min.
Moi Monroe: 13 hr. 25 min.

Per Cheryl, "I compare it to having a baby. Lots of fun and excitement, but once over, I do not want to do another one anytime soon!" I don't blame her! An entire day of triathloning? Not me! But I'm sure proud of them!
