This week’s workout we’ll head to the track! Originally, we were thinking of doing longer intervals. However, since everyone had such great races (and might feel a bit worse for the wear), we may change it up and make it a lighter affair. . So let’s plan on meeting at Bannecker at 6:30.
On to the races!!!! – Some truly encouraging and outstanding performances by Crawlers. Please email us if we missed your race.
* Baltimore Road Running Club’s Ultra Keg 50k – Ben, Melissa, and Jeff ran this at Gunpowerder Falls State Park in Eastern Maryland! I believe they all had a great time. And I think Melissa was third overall. I’d love to hear how it went.
* Wilson Bridge Half Marathon – Gareth runs 1:26. This sounds like a great effort.. Possibly, a pr?
* Revenge of the Penguins 20 miler – Lauren G runs 2:38, a great performance as the whole race is on the tow path (I believe)! Also, I would love to hear about the meaning of the race name.
* Reach the Beach Relay (NH) – Anthony and I and our team, the Haverford College Old Old Goats, ran super tough and finished 8th over all out of 430 teams. Each of us ran 3 legs through the mountains and villages of NH. Anthony ran amazingly, running a total of 21 miles all under 6 minute pace. I wasn’t as quick, but was very pleased with my effort, especially up some enormous hills. We also had a great time visiting with old team mates, and making friends with a younger Haverford alumni team, who ended up 6th and beat us by only 11 minutes.
Finally, Kelly and Paul will be running the Berlin marathon this weekend, which is super cool! I know their training’s been going well. So we wanted to wish them well, to have a great race, and to celebrate Octoberfest for a post race celebration.
