Weekend Results: Richmond and Charlotte 13.1 and 26.2

RICHMOND HALF MARATHON AND MARATHON

GRC//Pacers - NB took Virginia by storm on Saturday with a flurry of top 15 finishes in the Richmond Half Marathon and Marathon.

In the men's half marathon, Tyler Dye, Jerry Greenlaw, and Evan Jurkovich worked together to finish 11, 12, and 13 with only 8 seconds separating the three when they crossed the line. Tyler's hard work paid off with a PR of nearly 5 minutes and Evan and Jerry showed off their early fitness as they look forward to Houston Marathon in January.

In the women's half marathon, Julie Tarallo cut over 80 seconds off her PR to finish 11th in 80:38. Maura Carroll snagged a top 10 finish in 80:04, setting herself up well for the remainder of the season.

The Richmond Marathon marked Teal Burrell and Emily Potter's first serious return since each had a child and they made the most of the opportunity, finishing 5th and 6th in 2:50:19 and 2:52:19. Though they did not run qualifying times in Richmond, look for Teal and Emily to toe the line at the Olympic Trials in 2020. Natalie Patterson achieved a PR of 3:03:13 in her GRC debut. As Coach Jerry put it - "Natalie has a ton of untapped potential, and I'm looking forward to great things from her in a GRC jersey in the future."

Novant Health Charlotte Half Marathon

Recent George Washington University grad John-Louis Pane (JLP) impressed in his half marathon debut, finishing 3rd overall in 72:30. Given that he flew solo for most of the race, look for JLP to cut some serious time in his next attempt at this distance.

Look good, race good
