GT Racers

By Emily Bell, Marketing Manger


We have some pretty talented and athletic employees around the offices at GT! Many summer days were spent hitting the pavement for a few of our guys who were training for fall races. Matt Larson just competed in the DSM Half Marathon (13.1 miles) where he finished in just 1 hour, 34 minutes. Torey Stallsmith raced in the Twin Cities Full Marathon (26.2 miles) where he finished in a personal best (not his first rodeo!) of just 2 hours, 56 minutes which qualified him for the 2017 Boston Marathon. Matt Gardiner competed in the Bank of America Chicago Full Marathon (26.2 miles) where he clocked in at 3 hours, 57 minutes. He also raced in two half ironman competitions this summer (1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, 13.1 mile run). Needless to say, we are very proud of these athletes and will use them as motivation as we start to ponder our 2016 new year’s resolutions.
