Dusen - 2:26:26 @ Chicago, GRC Women Finish 2nd



UPDATE: The GRC Women's Team, featuring Anna Holt-Gosselin, Laura O'Hara, Kate Dart, and Susan Hendrick takes 2nd in the Open Women's Team competition at the Army Ten Miler behind a stacked all-African team. Interestingly, the women would have finished 2nd in the men's division and 3rd overall in the mixed team division on their own. Had the GRC run a true Mixed Open Team, it would have run away with the title by TWENTY-ONE MINUTES! The Men's team of Luff, Outlaw, Wertz, and Bain would have easily finished 2nd in the men's division.

Dusen finishes Chicago Marathon in 2:26:26, 5:36 pace
. After coming through the half over trials qualifying pace (he was 1:09:41), he shut it down, got a scenic long run and saved himself for another shot

"Karl is not making excuses, but it's clear to me that the weather was not conducive today," Coach Jerry Alexander said. " He made the right decision not running all out the last half when he knew qualification was out of the question. His fitness is superb, and with a short recovery and a couple of good weeks of training, he will be ready for a second shot later this fall."

**Claire Hallissey of Arlington via Great Britain (who runs for C.A.R.) finished 6th in 2:29!

Big thanks to all who came out in DC this morning. Seemed like you guys were everywhere. Pretty sure I saw Ban 23 times. Not my day, but totally appreciate the support.

I was thrown for a loop when I saw the change to the course, previously I thought it ran a small loop around the front of the Capitol but today that was cut out. Where were the other changes? Note: I wasn't racing, I was watching at Water Stop #6. GRC women's singlets are great, very easy to spot.

Great GRC presence out there. Thanks for all the cheering guys! And as for that course, that final mile was just plain cruel (one more long grinder of a hill and too many turns).

bain said...

Yes, thank you all for coming out to cheer, you guys rock! Definitely helped me finish strong. The last mile was different from 2 years ago, and I agree it was not very pleasant.
