Congratulations to Amy Francouer and Chris Bratseth who have been named B78 athletes of the month for April 2012.
Amy Francouer competed in the Times Colonist 10km run in Victoria BC and set a 13 minute personal best. Amy finished in 1 hour and 7 minutes improving on last years time of 1 hour 20 minutes. “Twelve weeks ago I was nervous about running for twenty minutes straight, today I ran for 67 minutes and felt great!” said Francouer after the race. We got some of Amy’s post race thoughts on camera at B78 TV.
Chris Bratseth had an incredible weekend at the end of April. Chris not only competed in but won and set a new course record by eight minutes at the 19th annual Marathon Shuffle. The 29km race covers a section of the incredible sunshine coast trail. Chris did a great job getting ready for the race and did a great job executing on the day!

An honorable mention goes out to The Condo groups Stephanie West who courageously battled her way to the finish line at the Times Colonist 10km after having a significant physical meltdown at 9km. It was all mind over matter for Stephanie in the last kilometer and she showed real guts to get there.
B78 Athletes of the month receive awesome swag from B78.
