Three CeeVacs finish first marathon in Victoria, three more complete hot race in Chicago

Brenda Niziol, Sharon Horsburgh and Ken DeEll — ran their first marathon (42.2 km) at the Goodlife Fitness Marathon in Victoria.

Three CeeVacs runners — Brenda Niziol, Sharon Horsburgh and Ken DeEll — ran their first marathon (42.2 km) at the Goodlife Fitness Marathon in Victoria last month, joined in action by marathon veterans Margaret Symon, Laura and James Griffin.

The CeeVacs were also well represented in the concurrent half marathon by Jill Ramstead, Teresa Lewis-Schneider, Ben Marrs, Kelly Schellenberg, Michelle Peters, Colleen Vanderheide, Wendy Marshall, Wendy Williams and Danna Hadden. Another CeeVacs runner, Josh Williams, ran the 8k road race.

Several CeeVacs members also volunteered with the race or stood at various locations along the course to cheer on runners.

On the same day as the Victoria Marathon, CeeVacs runners Catherine Macey, Lisa de Lusignan, and Glenn Goodwin, ran the Chicago Marathon on a hot day.

“Just completing a marathon under this condition is a major accomplishment,” DeEll said.
