Two of eLocal Listing.s key employees rose very early on Sunday October 17th to participate in the 2010 Long Beach International City Bank Half Marathon. The event started today at 7AM and the runners really love the fusion of the Metropolitan and the Ocean and attracts runners from California and other states.
Phil Collins . VP of Product Development is an avid runner and can be seen running the hills of Temecula Wine Country and beautiful, but hilly De Luz, CA. Phil finished the race with a respectable time of 1 hour 54 minutes at a pace of 8:44 second miles. He finished in the top 25% of his age bracket and the top 13% of all who participated in the Half Marathon. Barely winded, Phil began planning his next race within minutes of completing the race.
Mike Vo, Director of Engineering is new to half marathons and on Phil Collin.s encouragement began training for the marathon in early August. Like his effort in providing leadership and innovation to our Found Fast Product Lines, Mike.s determination meant that completing the race was a sure thing.
Mai Ly, an eLocal Listing customer from Ladera Dentistry in Ladera Ranch, CA also participated in the Half Marathon. Long Beach was Mai.s first race as well, but plans on continuing participating in area races including Disney.s Half Marathon in January 2011. May finished 40.48% in her bracket which is great for her first race.
Congratulations to the three of you! Check out more blogs on www.elocallisting.com
