Actors Tanna Frederick and Joel West Run 1:39 at Rock 'n' Roll Los Angeles Half Marathon
Actors Tanna Frederick and Joel West run 1:39 at Rock 'n' Roll Los Angeles Half Marathon; Frederick attempts to qualify for Boston Marathon in five weeks.
“I knew this was going to be the best race ever when I ran through the legs of a giant air balloon,” exclaimed the award-winning actress Frederick, whose next play, The Rainmaker, opens at the Edgemar Center for the Arts in Santa Monica in January.
“This is a big step toward Tanna’s marathon in five weeks,” said her coach, Dr. Jason Karp, owner of RunCoachJason.com and the 2011 IDEA Personal Trainer of the Year. “She ran 7:35 pace for a half marathon today when she ran 7:02 pace for 5K in September. You don’t need a PhD to see that’s a great improvement in endurance.”
West, who stars in the HGTV series, Design on a Dime this winter and next year’s movie, The Farm, was also pleased with his race despite a nagging Achilles tendonitis. “I started slow and after mile 5, no one passed me. During the second half of the race, I was eating people up like Pac Man! I loved that race!”
Frederick and West will both run the California International Marathon on December 2, where Frederick will attempt to qualify for the prestigious Boston Marathon. For full results of the Rock ’n’ Roll Los Angeles Half Marathon, go to http://running.competitor.com/
