On a classically muggy summer morning in DC, Hannah Rowe made her GRC debut a good one, winning the Lawyers Have Heart 5k on Saturday in a sensational time of 17:35. Shauneen Werlinger was nipping on her coattails with a second place effort of 17:42. Both of these ladies have earned a spot in the GRC top 5 all-time with these excellent performances.
The GRC men also showed the humidity who's boss with a 1-2-3 sweep. Luke Meyer ran 15:46 for the win, followed by Sean O'Leary in second with a time of 16:35, and Dave O'Hara finished with a solid third place run of 16:59.
Up next for the GRC is Grandma's Marathon and the Garry Bjorklund Half-Marathon on Saturday, June 20. The GRC contingent of Kristin Johnson, Luke Meyer, Kieran O'Connor, and Jerry Outlaw will hope for a bit less humidity in the northern town of Duluth, Minnesota as they'll all be striving to hit the personal bests for which they've been training hard all season. Stay tuned for a race preview this week!
