October 30 - Running at 7,300 feet, Mizuno Racing Team Member, Patrick Rizzo placed 8th in the Pan Am Games Marathon. Patrick was the top US finisher with a time of 2:21.58.
October 29 - Racing on the track for the first time in over 2 years, Mizuno Racing Team Member, Serena Burla, won a 10K in Indiana in a time of 32:48. Placing 2nd was Mizuno Racing Team Member, Clara Grandt, in a time of 33:27. Clara's time meets the trials qualifying standard but is not one of the top 24 times in the US, Clara may try again later this spring. What is very positive about Serena and Clara's performances is that they are in marathon strength training and not 10K track speed shape and they both raced very well.
