Controlled was the word of the day at the Parks Half Marathon. With temperatures in the 70s and climbing and a full slate of competitive races coming up over the next few weeks, Pacers/GRC - NB faithful were not looking for much more than a solid tempo effort.
On the women’s side, Frances Loeb finished in 1:27:06 (6:39/mile) to finish 4th, which should give her some confidence as she looks forward to Philly Rock N’ Roll half marathon this weekend. In the men’s race, Paul Balmer turned in a respectable 1:14:40 (5:42/mile) to finish 7th and begin his season on a positive note.
