Emily P did double duty this week as she sharpens up for the full at Richmond. On Thursday she was second overall, and first woman, in a Halloween 5k while pushing the triple stroller on a hilly course, which Emily described as perhaps the hardest effort of her career, and that's saying something for a 3-time Olympic Trials qualifier. On Saturday, Emily got the win in the RRCA Southeast Region 10 mile championship, running 61:01 on an out and back course.
Stewart got roped into running the HCC Team Challenge, an obstacle race that was allegedly 5k, for his office team, and being a dutiful employee he brought a ringer of his own in the form of his lovely wife. Stew and Steph both got the wins, and because they both started in the third wave, their biggest obstacle was dodging the other participants who were clogging the course.
Sean B placed 7th in the Cuyamaca College 6k XC in San Diego, in 19:34. While xc times are meaningless, particularly when the course is not accurate (which appears to have been the case), it's clear that Sean ran well because there were a couple of national caliber guys less than a minute ahead of him.
