FLRC Challenge completed!

Allow me to interrupt your regular Wednesday programming for an important message—the FLRC Challenge has seen its first completion of all 10 courses! Drumroll, please…

In keeping with the way the Challenge lets everyone complete, regardless of age or speed, the person first across the finish line was 58-year-old Jamie Loehr, with a 46.05% age grading. Congratulations to Jamie! (Who, I’ll note, is also a busy doctor, which makes his achievement all the more impressive.)

We have a tight race for second place, with three contenders currently having nine courses under their belts: Caitlin Loehr, Gabrielle Woo, and Bob Walters. Watch this space to see who qualifies for their FLRC Challenge medal next.

And if, like me, you’ve done only a few of the courses, never fear, since you have the rest of the year to check them off your Challenge list.

Our second Challenge completion goes to Caitlin Loehr! Although Caitlin and Jamie don’t necessarily run together, it’s great to see a husband-and-wife team as our first two people to finish all 10 courses. (And they’re doing great things for the @Fabulous-50s team points!)

Kudos to Gabrielle Woo for braving the cold rain today for our third completion of the FLRC Challenge! She did it in style, too, with a double effort that combined Forest Frolic and the South Hill Rec Way.

Bob Walters is our remaining runner with nine efforts—I’m betting he ends up out in Virgil this weekend. Liz Hartman, Pete Kresock, and Karen Ingall could also complete their medal requirements with a pair of runs over the weekend.

Our fourth FLRC Challenge completion goes to Bob Walters—congratulations, Bob!

And no sooner do I post when I see that Pete Kresock, race director of the Danby Down & Dirty race, ran his own course to complete the FLRC Challenge. Congrats, Pete, on being our fifth finisher!

Who will be next—Liz Hartman or Karen Ingall, both of whom need two more courses?

And the answer is… Karen Ingall! Congratulations to @kag22 for being the sixth person to complete all ten FLRC Challenge courses.

Liz Hartman has just one to go, and after her, there are six people with eight courses done.

And Liz Hartman has now notched her tenth effort, making her the seventh person to complete the FLRC Challenge—congrats, @lizhartman!

Matthew Clark has only one more to go—my money is on him completing the Challenge at Saturday’s group run on the Danby Down & Dirty course.

And then there were eight. Congrats to Matthew Clark (@mclark) for completing the FLRC Challenge on today’s group run of the Danby Down & Dirty course!

Will Jesse Koenecke (@jtk1) head out to Virgil to run his final Forest Frolic course this weekend? Or will one of the seven people who have eight courses under their belts run some extra miles to sneak in ahead?

Congrats to Jesse Koenecke (@jtk1) for completing Forest Frolic for his tenth FLRC Challenge course on a gorgeous spring day!

Next up may be Ved Gund (@vedgund), who’s lacking only a Danby Down & Dirty to finish off his Challenge.

Ved Gund (@vedgund) is indeed our 10th finisher for the full FLRC Challenge—congrats, Ved!

I won’t post the screenshot of all the finishers anymore since it’s getting big, but I’ll try to keep giving shout-outs to everyone who completes all ten courses since it’s a real achievement.
