Gobble Gobble

From Joel Gladfelter, running the Berwick Run for the Diamonds 9 Miler in PA...

"Ran 55:56 unofficial. Negative split in 2-3 inches of snow. Had to stop 3 times for unlaced shoes in the wet which were all in the back half. Lost about 60sec. Would have been close to breaking 55. Over 4min 30sec course PR. Puked 2min after finish. 28 degrees. Winner was 44min + change."

Great job Barf - you were 64th place in 55:57, finishing one second ahead of southeastern Pennsylvania's own Greg Cauller!

At the Gobble Cobble 7k in Harbor East, the crew pulled off a great race. Attendance was 360 runners - not bad for an event that was only announced a couple of weeks ago. I think this will mark a great tradition. Patty Mack got the W and therefore established the event and course record in 24:36 or something. Berardi was 2nd. Dr. Rod and Tom Stewart were there. Denise took the win for the ladies, running just hard enough to win. Alyssa started off super fast and ran the cobbles real well, and finished 4th overall. Christine Trzcinski ran her first race since Boston.

At the Tel Hai Turkey Bowl 5k (xc), where it was 33 degrees and sleeting, Tom Stott finished around 11th place in 19:01, while Patty was 24:40 - awesome race for both!

Arjun finished 11th in 28:47 at the Palatine Turkey Trot 5M, while Melissa ran the 2 mile run with her sister.

Diane was 7th at the Troy Turkey Trot in 19:55 - just farting around with her friends. They dressed up as chefs chasing a turkey and still ran pretty darn quick.

I noticed a few names in the Towson YMCA Turkey Trot 5k that I haven't seen race in a while - Rory Jenkins (where does he even live now??) finished 7th in 18:44 and BVA (Bobby Van Allen) was 13th in 20:10.
