Wocka Flocka Flame

A solid Easter weekend of racing...

Webark 5k down in West Virginia. Dusty dusted off the cobwebs, winning this race by over a minute in a new PR of 15:49. He said he had been feeling fatigued since Club Challenge and National Half, but he didn't let that deter him. Great job Dustin!

PVTC Easter Classic 5k Lauren Allison Dennisuk wished she knew what kind of time she was near, because her 20:11 5th place was only 9 seconds off her PR! And she hasn't been doing anything fast lately (except, I guess, the absurdly quick workout we made her do last week in the rain).

From the local college scene: Greg Jubb helped the Terps 4x800m relay to a new school record (7:33.37) at the Colonial Relays, and then ran a 4:07 1500m. Megan DiGregorio lowered her steeplechase PR by another 11 seconds (11:02) to finish 2nd at the UPenn meet. "John" Hopkins standout Laura Paulsen ran a 17:11 to finish 2nd in the 5000m at Duke.

Purple Drink Athlete of the Week - for his win and new PR, and his first PDAW ever, Dustin Dusty Meeker!

Tonight at the track, there will once again be a few workouts going on. Melissa will be running 4xMile, 4mile jog, 3mile tempo. Arjun/Cheese will be doing 4x600m, 6x400m. I think that's what they said they were doing. Alex B will be doing 7x1000m @ 3:20 with 200m jog.

Weekend - Orioles home opener Friday at 3pm; Hopkins meet Friday at 3pm; UDel meet Saturday; Cherry Blossom/Cherry Pit 10 milers Sunday morning; Blue Jay 5k at Hopkins Sunday morning.
