Weekend Preview: Zak Attack edition

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was also really damn hot," is how Dickens probably would have started A Tale of Two Cities were he writing the past couple weeks. And then! Sweet temperate relief on the horizon this weekend, just in time for GRCers to supply the missing heat. Here's what we've got cooking:

Zak takes on the first big US soil (sorry Frances) marathon of the season, in what is probably the Lehigh Valley marathon according to Google but is definitely in Pennsylvania if not.

Emily d takes on the mile up the coast in the sub-elite heat of the 5th Ave Mile (club record is 4:49.07, be on the watch?)

Native son Kyle W will return to Minnesota to run in some sort of half marathon, and is likely to return with a sizable PR that won't fit in the overhead.

Closer to home, Kerry, Sam C, and Sean O are running the Parks Half. This will be Sam's GRC debut.

Outlaw will look to stretch his vicious summer speed into the 5k at the 9/11 Memorial race as he transitions to the "hard training" for the marathon.

Other people are also probably running, but due to the idiocy and crippling fallibility of the author, they are not recorded here.
