-- LOS ANGELES, CA
– On a beautiful fall day in southern California that felt more like summer, Tanna Frederick, a member of REVO2LT Running Team
and star of the recently released film, Just 45 Minutes from Broadway
, cruised the Rock ‘n’ Roll Los Angeles Half Marathon course on October 28 in 1:39:24. Actor and former Calvin Klein model Joel West came back from an injured Achilles tendon to run 1:39:34.
“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/cgiresults?eId=12.
