Trying Something New….with so many new members joining, the Prez just doesn’t have the time to write a short bio for each new member. And if he did, the newsletter will end up being 50+ pages and take up over 10 MG of disk space. So for the new members whom submitted the Prez a photo, the least he could do is write a short bio for these new members.
New Members for the Month of June
6/01 – Karin Sandoval #976 (Edwardsville, Illinois): Karin joins the Maniacs as a Bronze level member having done 3 marathons (Indianapolis, Bass Pro and Harpeth Hills) in one month. She started her marathoning venture back in 2002 (Crown King Scramble) and since that time has completed 12 marathons in 8 states.
6/02– Deanna Ashby #977 (Spokane, Washington): Deanna considers herself a “newbie” to running, having just started 2 years ago. She’s certainly on a roll now as she is inducted into the Insane Asylum as a 3-star Gold member with her best streak of 4 marathons (Boston, Colorado, Coeur D’Alene and Newport) in 4 states in 6 weeks time. She has run a total of 11 marathons and while she hasn’t claimed an ultra to her resume yet, she’s training for Le Grizz 50 later this year.
6/02 –Lambert “LT” Timmermans #978 (Hemet, California): Lambert initiation to the marathon world was the tough Haulin Aspen Trail Marathon last year and since that fateful day has completed 5 more. He prefers the solitude of the trail ultras than the pavement of marathons as his best hardcore streak consists of the Unknown 50km, Bishop High Sierra 50 miler and the Shadow of the Giants 50 km all done within a month’s time, making him a Bronze Manaic.
