We had a some strong performances on the roads this weekend. On Saturday, Kevin continued his winning ways with a comfortable victory at the Germantown 5 Miler in 25:55. Unlike his recent races that were battles to the tape, Kevin was in control of this one from the gun. Charlie was second in a solid 26:25 two weeks after his huge half marathon PR. On Sunday, Shauneen won the Capital Hill Classic 10k in 37:18. Despite the relatively slow time, Shauneen ran quite well considering the temperature, and the fact that she had been feeling under the weather for a couple of days before the race. On the men's side, Wertz was third in 33:48. In the Wild Half Marathon in Wildwood, NJ, Teal and Kristin continued their buildup for Grandmas, with Teal winning in 1:21:21, and Kristin finishing second in 1:22:13. Teal and Kristin were not pleased with the times, but there's no doubt that the heat and humidity and lack of competition slowed them down considerably, and I'm confident that they're both on track for big PRs in Duluth.
We're at BCC on Wednesday for our normal 7:15 start, so meet for the warmup at 6:30.
