Love is in the air! Not only did Brian run his first half-marathon in Myrtle Beach, he also proposed to his girlfriend at the finish line! 
Congratulations to Danielle Bauer and Brian Hunt!! 
Your GSRC family wishes you all the best!




Murray Honick: 100 Marathons

Some runners can't fathom ever running a marathon much less accomplishing the feat our very own Murray did in such a short period of time! We are so proud of you Murray and wish you many more years of running marathons!
Myrtle Beach Marathon Weekend

Club members began checking the weather for race weekend several weeks before the big event. Some were nervous about the wind and colder temps. Others were nervous because it was their first race at that distance. All were excited to be part of race weekend! Special thanks to the volunteers that helped with medal unpacking, the expo table, the 4 mile clothes drop box, and after the races at the club tent. And, the weather was pretty cooperative...except for the wind! Congrats to all who crossed the finish line!

Thank you to Burro Loco for providing gift certificates to our MB Marathon Weekend volunteers and drink cards for our club members! Stay tuned for more information on the Stache Dash 5K to be held at Burro Loco!

Mark your calendar for March 18 at 6:30pm as we gather for our monthly GSRC social at Burro Loco! There will be a 5K run beforehand for all those interested! Hope to see you there!!
BFF 5K Training Group
