Baltimore 10 Miler 2012 Results

Results are posted on the website which will remain nameless.

Good to see Dave Berdan healthy and racing again. Tristram ran into him this week and it seems like he's coming around again, already doing some pretty hard workouts. It paid off with a win at this race in 54:22 - 2:18 clear of 2nd place. Dan Miranda, who has not been running much since Boston, and instead focused on cycling, found his legs at the right time as he ran 57:00. 6 minutes faster than last year and just a few seconds off of his all-time PR. Dan was 3rd. Right behind was Eitan Halper-Stromberg, 4th at 57:15, and then Andrew Beef Jaffe in 5th at 57:23.

The ladies top 5 also yielded some familiar names as local Asics rep Michaela Courtney was 3rd in 1:02:40, and then Becky Parks was 4th at 1:04:32. Becky was pleased, less than a minute slower than her Cherry Blossom time, but 2 minutes faster than her time here last year. Jackie Truncellito was 5th in 1:05:25, despite a gun time of about a minute slower. Typically @JMTrunce!

Here's how some of the others fared:

Jack Flowers 16th 1:00:05
Alexander Waldt 17th 1:00:36
Steve Levin 18th 1:00:44
Terry Decker 32nd 1:02:40
Andy Thivierge 40th 1:03:50
Kristen Till 7th 1:07:54
Meg Harnet 13th 1:09:31
Marci Benda 17th 1:10:06
Sara Breedlove 18th 1:11:01
Kevin Frick 176th 1:11:30
Frank Regan 195th 1:12:06
Christine Trzcinski 33rd 1:13:07
Ben Steinberg 272nd 1:14:04
Ed Jablonski 313th 1:14:56

Grandma's Marathon/USA Half Marathon Championships

Chrissie Ramsey ran 1:19:15 to finish 43rd F at the USA Half Marathon Championships, held concurrently with the Grandma's Marathon. Meg McNew ran 3:05:42 for 43rd, which is a PR, and it looks like PJ Anderer had a tough day out there, finishing up at 4:15:05. Results can be found here (just be sure to change the race field)

Irv Zablocky Memorial Run

Joel Gladfelter competed in his favorite race - Z's race - a 3.55 mile event in PA. Joel finished 3rd in 21:30, which, all things considered, is not too bad. Great job Joel!

George Sheehan 5k

This great race that previously was a 5 Miler, and back in the day was a 10k, was shortened to a 5k because the people that live in Fair Haven are weiners. The numbers were lower, but still 1300 finishers, which is decent, although the depth of field may never return to what it used to be. Lillian Pinault ran 20:26, and the McGrath clan ran in the sickest singlets of all time, which I'll get a picture of on Twitter later.
