Kerry hits the middle of the pack!

Long-time Mercury athlete Kerry Enick had a breakthrough race on Sunday at the UCTC super sprint in Calgary. Kerry started his athletic journey 9 years ago at 340 pounds. Over those years Kerry has lost 160 lbs, and run multiple running events, triathlons, marathons and even Ironman Canada in 2009. Usually finishing in the bottom third of every race, Kerry was delighted to finish 59th/102 and 6th in his age group! Congratulations Kerry from the Mercury team.

On Saturday, Kendall, Carolyn and Tessa all ran the Women's Half Marathon in Canmore. From their reports, the race would have been more aptly called "The Women's Mountain Marathon" as the course was largely on trails, hilly and 23km! None-the-less cutie Carolyn managed 9th overall, and 4th in her age group. Hot on her heels for most of the way was Kendall, and Tessa, after her first winter of injury-free running, managed a stellar run (sans swagger but with swag!).

Well done to all!
