Our very own Mary Unsworth had another incredibly successful weekend on the track, this time at the Provincial Masters Indoor Track and Field Championships in Toronto. In the 1500m, Mary ran 4:32.43, a new Ontario W40 Masters record by 21 seconds. Mary also won the 3000m, running 9:53.02 (3:18 pace!) and beating the old Canadian record by 53 seconds.
Congratulations to Mary on these accomplishments and your new Ontario and Canadian records! You continue to inspire and seriously impress us all.
Contrary to popular belief, not all MARSians sink in the water or fall off their spin bikes. On Sunday, several competed and had fantastic results at the TriMuskoka Indoor Triathlon, consisting of a 15 minute pool swim, 15 minute spin bike, and 15 minute indoor track run.
Jennifer Nicholson was top overall female, and top overall (yes, she beat every guy there). Jen had a fantastic 37 lengths of the pool, a 115 RPM on the bike, and 15.5 laps of the Summit Centre track.
Kayla Gallo was second female overall, top in her age group, and was tied for the best run performance at 17 laps (each lap is 217m, so that’s a 4:04 pace!). Rebecca Francis was 3rd woman overall and second in her age group. Jane Wolfe won her age group (it turns out she can swim, too), Jessica Adam was second in her age group, and Jennifer MacMillan was third in her age group.
Congrats also to other MARSians with strong results including CJ Seaman and Nicolle Howell.
Chris Watson and Darla Coles did not compete, and were seen instead wandering up Aspdin Road on a long run in the freezing rain.
