Wednesday workout, September 24


If any further proof were needed, we received confirmation yesterday that long races and high humidity are a bad combination.  Our crew at the Philadelphia Rock and Roll Half Marathon encountered very difficult conditions, and unfortunately the times reflect those conditions.  But the day was not a total loss, as Amy made her official GRC debut in a very respectable 1:21:49.  Amy is a superstar in the making--she was a soccer player at UVA who had no background in running, and essentially untrained she ran 59:36 at the GW Parkway 10 mile in April.  With a few months of consistent training under her belt, there's no telling what Amy will be able to achieve, so keep an eye on that young lady going forward.  We also had a solid performance from Pat Kuhlmann, who was second master in 1:12:18.  The rest of our crew, Sean Barrett, Outlaw, Charlie, and Teal, were all hampered mightily by the heat, but their fitness will show down the road. 

Closer to home, Kevin defended his title at the Race for Our Kids 10k in Baltimore, in a very controlled 31:27.  Kevin will be back in action on Saturday at Clarendon Day 10k, where he'll be looking to continue his winning ways.


We're back at BCC this week for our normal 7:15 start, so meet for the warmup at 6:30.  The school may be closed, so it might be necessary to find bathrooms elsewhere.
I'll send the women's workout separately.
I'll see you at BCC on Wednesday night.
