LEXUS LACE UP HALF MARATHON

It was great to see so many familiar faces (and meet new ones!) at the Lexus Lace Up half marathon on Saturday, November 19, 2016. We hope you enjoyed a free massage at our booth, enjoyed the PV scenery, and set a new personal record. A special thanks to our amazing physical therapy team for rising early and manning the booth. There were so many happy race muscles as a result!
