2. Sean Barrett - 62:12
The conditions at the RRCA 10 Miler were sub-optimal to say the least, but the cold rain did not dampen the spirits of our intrepid crew.
We had a great day at the Millrose Games, with both of our A teams finishing a well-earned second place, and both of our B teams finishing sixth. Caroline led off for the A team in 3:40.3, which put us in the thick of the race. Alex ran a very strong 58.2 despite being impeded in the exchange zone, and when Jesse was done with her customary strong carry in 2:15.3, the race for second was down to us and NYAC. Gina got on the shoulder of her NYAC counterpart, who pushed the pace hard in an effort to shake Gina. That effort proved to be futile, as Gina stayed patient, and with 150 to go she unleashed a huge kick, finishing in an excellent 4:51.8, for a time of 11:45.79. Gina ran the fastest leg of the day by over 2 seconds, and it was the fastest anchor leg in GRC history. The B team ran so well that after extremely impressive legs from Jackie in 3:39.7 and Sarah C in 58.1, they were in second place, a step ahead of the A team. Angelina ran a solid 2:18.1, and Liz T anchored in a strong 5:07.5, for a time of 12:03.4. It's a testament to the depth of our women's track group that our B team was stride for stride with the A team for 2 legs.
