Birds in Boston! Meet the Racers

Kristin Metcalf

Updated 4/20 with full results. Congrats racers!

Excitement and energy has been building all week for Boston Marathon Monday. On Thursday we were extremely honored to announce our newest team member, Sarah Attar who will be racing the marathon as well. Saturday we had a handful of women take the streets of Boston in the BAA 5k. This year is by the far the largest group of birds gathered to race the marathon for us: 15 states represented and 33 women total! At the front of our flock will be Haute Volée runner Andrea Duke. Seattle area fans will be gathering together on Monday morning in a local coffee shop close to the Nest to watch the coverage and follow our athletes (RSVP details below!). We are so proud of everyone who has been working hard over the winter and spring to prepare for their races. Have fun out there! Boston Strong!

Way to go, birds!

Based on these results, I saw either Jenny Hitchings or Jennifer de Hueck sometime in the second half of the race, and her cheery support helped me find my strength in the last 5 miles to bring home a 2:56:02. Thank you, sister bird! Super proud of all these flockmates on a tough Marathon Monday!!
