CMC Athlete of the Month: March 2017
Mary Klene of Manchester, NH is our CMC Athlete of the Month for March. Running for the Millennium Racing Team, Mary showed off her speed the last weekend of March with victories at the inaugural Shamrock Half Marathon and Northeast Delta Dental Shamrock Shuffle in back-to-back days.
Klene took home the win at the Shamrock Half Marathon with a time of 1:28:19 – a 6:45 per mile average. But perhaps more impressive was her encore performance the next day at the Northeast Delta Dental Shamrock Shuffle when Mary averaged 5:49 per mile to be the top overall female of the 2-mile race in 11:38.
Every month, we recognize and celebrate the achievements of two members of the community. One male and one female athlete, as nominated by their peers, will be chosen to be honored as the Catholic Medical Center Athlete of the Month. We are not just looking at those who consistently finish at the front of the pack but also at those who demonstrate exemplary character and are a positive influence on their community. These qualities include, but are not limited to, dedication, commitment, leadership, and perseverance. If you know of someone who you would like to nominate as athlete of the month, please fill out the form.
