Weekend Recap: Richmond Saturday, Vets Day Sunday

In a weekend filled with seemingly perfect racing weather, GRC took the world by storm with strong performances up and down I-95. Is November the new October? The jury is still out on that one.

On Saturday, Natalie Patterson was the star of the day at the Richmond Marathon with a breakthrough PR of 2:55. Alex Archer also ran his best race in a GRC singlet with a 1:09:52 half marathon.

Weekend Recap: NYC action, St. Rita's action

As is customary for the first weekend in November, NYC was the center of the running universe over the weekend. Since GRC is never a club to be left out of the limelight, a few of our harriers took advantage of the opportunity and logged some impressive times against tough fields. It didn't seem like any of them made the ESPN broadcast, but hey, there's always next year for that.

Back near our nation's capital at the St. Rita's 5k, a number of top spots in both the men's and women's races went to those wearing white and blue singlets. Sam from Cornell seems to be on quite the hot streak with road 5k's lately.

There are also some grab bag results from over the weekend: Mileage Sam placed 4th at the St. Louis Half Marathon in 1:11:55, and Panhandle Crew member Lucas ran 4:15 for bronze in at the Myrtle Mile in South Carolina.

Lastly, a belated congratulations is in order for our resident Masters marathoner Pat Kulhmann, who placed 20th overall and first in the 45-49 age group with a 2:38:00 clocking at the Marine Corps Marathon. Who says that Father Time is undefeated?
