Threat Level Midnight

The New Year is here and already we've had some terrific performances!

The Resolution Run 5k in Patterson Park is a nice little event as it takes place at 1 in the afternoon. Of course all the people that were crashing at Fleet St were too tired to make it any further than the Chinese place on the corner so we missed it. But here's who didn't miss it:

Josh Wesalo (2nd, 17:39), Bryan Borowski (3rd, 17:45), Dave Ploskonka (18th, 20:09), Joel Gladfelter (23rd, 20:42), Christine Trzcinski (3rd, 21:17) and JIM ADAMS (113th, 26:00)

At the New Year's Day 10k in Bel Air area, Meg McNew, who has been on hiatus since PDR back in September, took 2nd with a 46:34.

BRRC puts on a little prediction run 5k, and Doug Ripley finished in the middle of the pack with a 22:01 (he guessed he'd run 23).

Then on Sunday, Cynthia Evans chugged herself 25 laps around the indoor oval at PG Sports and Learning Complex, finishing 2nd in the 5000m in 23:33.3.

These performances ultimately led to the naming of our first Purple Drink Athlete of the Week for 2010, and because she has been sidelined for so long but was determined to make a comeback on the 1st day of the near year, Megan McNew earns our first PDAW.
