Big shout out to CFK’s long-time, OG member, John Allaire, on his Mammoth Half-marathon performance this past weekend. His final time was 2:20:14. That’s a 13:52 PR! It was also good enough for 25th place out of 43 competitors in the 50-54 age division. If you are at all familiar with running, then you know this is no small feat. The altitude makes an already extremely difficult task even harder!
There is absolutely no stopping this man. He is constantly looking to test his abilities against himself and his peers. Part of the CrossFit methodology is constantly exploring, learning, and playing new sports; no one lives up to the true CrossFit spirit better than John. Look out for him during next year’s CrossFit Games season. I see a Games appearance on the horizon.
A special mention is also in order for his wife, Bev Allaire, and daughter, Megan Allaire, for braving the altitude and completing the 5k course. The CrossFit spirit clearly runs in the family.
