Steve Terhune, El Dorado Hills: “I have peripheral and coronary artery disease. For me, every day that I’m able to be active or even mobile is a huge accomplishment.”
Janelle Harris, Pollock Pines: “I did a half-marathon in Oregon. It was 13 miles of trail running. I trained for 12 weeks.”
Steven Hoffman, El Dorado Hills: “A couple months ago I bench pressed 200 pounds. I only weigh 160, so I’m pretty proud of that.”
Sean O’Boyle, Rancho Cordova: “That would be Marine Corp boot camp. I was in great shape when I went in, but it was still brutal. Training in high-tech workout clothes is one thing; doing it all in boots, uniform and pack was much worse.”
Chris Maberto, El Dorado Hills: “The Big Blue Tahoe 24. It’s a 24-hour race that includes kayaking, mountain biking with a 10,000-foot elevation gain, and a bunch of running, hiking and orienteering mixed in. It’s considered an adventure race. I call it 24 hours of hell.”
