The indoor season is well underway. Check out how our athletes have been doing in our Results section.
Of note is our club's 5th place team placement in the Senior Division at the Athletics Ontario Senior Champs
on February 16, 2013. Our ladies worked hard to get this spot out of 26 teams. This is an excellent
placement. Congratulations ladies!

Creighton Connolly, our fast (and tall!) teammate currently living abroad in Manchester UK, is continuing to
show great improvement. He walked a new personal best in a 5km indoor race on Saturday in a time of
20:54! Holy smokes! Way to go Creighton!
Also, check out Ken Atkins' result in the Fort Lauderdale 1/2 marathon on Sunday here. He tells us that the
race day temperatures were oddly low for Florida (6 degrees!). Although I'm sure it was still much more
enjoyable than the -22 we had here on Sunday!
