Congratulations to Reshod Walking Shoes customer, Megan Romanes in her first place finish of the Women’s Racewalk division at the Rotorua Marathon on Saturday, May 8th. She managed a blistering 10:40 mile pace to finish in 4 hours 40 minutes and 52 seconds. She was supported by her family, with two of her children crossing the finish line with her. Juggling the long training sessions required to race hard for a full marathon on top of the challenges of being a mom is tough, but Megan is focused and determined. Coach Carmen enjoyed meeting Megan, along with her children, during online coaching sessions this past year and plans to continue cheering her on in her future racing. We wish her a quick recovery and a well-deserved Mother’s Day feast. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mom walkers. You are inspiring the next generation!
Power walking is bent knee walking, while racewalkers must display a straight knee at foot contact.
