Over twenty runners showed up today. Two were new and Beth rejoined us after a long absence. I did not get contact info on the two new guys. One of them is named Sonny and if anyone happened to get contact info, we have a job lead for him. We welcomed Dylan back after a two week vacation in RI. Also, Arwa is back from
Yesterday's Celebration of Running 5K
The first race of the Track Shack running series drew 2360 runners, almost 2/3 of whom were females! Along the way I got see and chat with Dawn, Jennifer, Barbara, Rose, Robert and Drew, his Mom. Robert. our youngest Sunday runner at age 23, turned in a blistering 5:45 minute pace. Jennifer, another youngster in the group nailed a sub 6:45 pace. Congratulations to all.
In my first race as an 80 year old, I placed 1st in the geriatric division and managed to beat last year's time for this race (which has the ugliest course of the series)/
From Lynne in the Pentagon
"It was a successful day at the Delaware Feis! Sean came in 2nd (of 2 dancers), but the guy who beat him was 2nd in the world in Sr Men (21+over) this year. I tied for 3rd in slip jig." Congratulations to both of you!
Lynne, a long time member of the Sunday running group, plans to join us for a run in December.
