The fourth annual Run2Scull, Scull2Run week saw Janet, Peter, Phoebe and Patty learn to scull while Abby finally got to join the runners after watching running camps from afar while she was at sculling camp in previous years. Coaches Matt and Lynn guided the runners through 14 hill repeats, a scintillating fartlek and tempo session in the rain on the Common and an impressionist painting-worthy Ridge Run 10 miler. Sculling managing director Troy Howell praised Patty and Phoebe calling them “this week’s sculling prodigies.”
It was a busy and laugh-filled week – there’s no rest for the weary when the athletes are sculling twice a day, running tough workouts and completing our classic Endurathon Day to boot!
Join us next year for Run2Scull’s fifth rendition!
