News & Notes

 Chanelle Price is opening up in a series of seven blogs about the challenges she has been facing for over a year. “Everyone is going through something. No matter how amazing a person’s life appears, he or she is most likely battling a storm we know nothing about. Take me for instance. The past 15 months have been the most difficult season of my life.” The series is titled “Smiling through the Struggle,” and she is making a post every day for seven consecutive days, of which, she has penned days one through three to date:

 Sara Hall will not be running the Boston Marathon. In a post on Instagram, she wrote, “Despite pouring my heart and soul into my Boston Marathon buildup, unfortunately I won’t be toeing the line in this year’s race due to an injury to my SI joint. Though I’m back running now, I have lost too much fitness to perform well and not risk re-injuring it.” See the full post here.

 Sarah Pease claims the Louisville Triple Crown of Running. On a snowy, rainy Saturday morning, Sarah took the W at the Papa John’s 10-miler which made her 3 for 3 on the circuit. Following the race, Sarah said, “I kinda was just going to do these races going into my track season and so it was just fun to get the win in all of them.” Read more: Runners brave cold in Papa John’s 10-Miler on WHAS 11

 Dana Mecke challenged Rose Monday to a race. Rose may have had the upper-hand though, as she was driving a Dodge Charger. Let’s go the video:

 Amanda Eccleston inducted into Hillsdale College’s Athletic Hall of Fame. In a post on Instagram, she said, “Forever grateful they took a chance on me 10 years ago and helped me become the runner I am today.”

 Joseph Gray opened up the floor for some healthy debate. Reply to his tweet to let him know your thoughts:

…then send him a congratulatory note for making his 25th USA National Team (!). In a post on Instagram, he wrote, “I set a goal during my first year of college to make 11 USA National Teams. At the time I realized with my current fitness it would be a stretch and I would have to make some serious changes if I wanted to even touch one USA Team. After making my first team I remember the butterflies I got putting that USA jersey on race morning. It was my first time experiencing that feeling and even after 25 teams, the feeling still lives!”

 Rachel Schneider ran a fast 800 in Arizona, setting a PR of 2:01.98. In a post on Instagram, she wrote, “Spontaneous trip down the mountain yesterday to run in the Sun Angel Classic. Happy to run away with an 800m PR on some tired legs.”
