First up - Paris marathon: Three Regina runners just ran the Paris marathon with 55,000 others! Big congrats to Kathy Dreher who finished in 4:44:34; Tania Diener in 5:12:31; and Jan Steenkamp in 5:38:37!

We're told some people mix up Australia with Austria...perhaps that's why one set of Marathon Matters runners went to Australia, and another set went to Austria on April 15. Down under, at the Canberra marathon in Australia, Conor Renouf ran 2:47:08 for 3rd in M20; and Gay Renouf ran 3:48:58 for 6th in W50.

Across the world in Austria, Tania Diener and Jan Steenkamp ran the Linz marathon. Tania ran 5:10:35 for 7th in W55 and Jan ran 5:12:03 for 62nd in M55. This was the third race in as many weeks for the duo - preceded by the CSC Gopher Marathon/half and the Paris marathon!

Congrats to all
