Huge Performances this Morning at DC Rock n Roll

Wow, some blazing performances this morning at the DC Rock n Roll Half Marathon. I can't see placing a yet, but here are the times.

• Jeff Redfern - 1:12:49 (new 2nd fastest Dojo half all time, PR?)
• Chris Higby - 1:14:01 (5th fastest Dojo half all time, PR?)
• Jenny Paul - 1:19:31 (NEW Dojo record, slicing 4 minutes off the previous fastest)
• Paul Karlsen - 1:19:35 (not bad for a tempo run)
• Amanda Hicks - 1:30:05 (debut race in a Dojo singlet!)
• Emilie Yeh - 1:33:40 (PR?)

As always, omissions are due to incompetence and not malice. Let me know if I missed anyone.

Hashawha Hills 50K Results!

Big kudos to Adams Watkins (aka Robin's husband), Tim, and Barry, for their performances at the Hashawha Hills 50K this past weekend! 

Check out the results and very nice writeup. But long story short: 
  • Adam had a come-from-behind win, 
  • Tim Greszler comes in 3rd - and still makes it out to workouts this week, and
  • Barry Hauptman comes in 19th - ditto for workouts. 
Congrats all!

Congrats to Jeff Redfern

It is pretty terrifying when someone can run a 2:41 marathon as a training effort, on a pretty darn challenging course. That's what Jeff did this morning, winning the GW Birthday Marathon (the 2nd Dojo-ista to accomplish the feat) in 2:41:16.

Congrats to Jeff!

Weekend Result Roundup

Congrats to the Capitol Hill Gang. 
  • The Summer of Jenny continues. Jenny Paul comes in 2nd place after a 20 hour international flight. Runs 38:27 (6:12 pace). 
  • Shlomo cranks to 8th place, with a very impressive 35:09 (5:40 pace).

Way to go everyone!

Also, I wanted to add one result that I missed from a couple weeks back. At the Broad Street Run, Colin McGrath blazed to a 30th overall finish with a 53:43 (5:22 pace over 10 miles). 

The result landed him in 2nd on the overall club record books. Congrats Colin!

Weekend Results - International Division

Congrats to Jenny Paul, who continues her hot streak with an international win at the Bay Run in Glengariff, Ireland. Jenny came in 3rd overall and 1st woman, with a time of 1:25:02 (just a hair off her PR). 

Results here

Congrats to Jenny! 

If there are any results I missed, go ahead and circulate and I'll update the blog.

Massanutten Mountain Trails 100 Miler

We have a lot of envelope-pushers in the Dojo. But even in this crew, Barry Hauptman exists in a very narrow part of our bell curve. Here's a quick recap of Barry's 100 mile race from this weekend:

Barry finished MMT in 29:47.   He was 51st overall and reports that this was the most difficult race he has ever done - more difficult even than Leadville a few years ago.  It's a very technical trail to begin with - lots and lots of rocks, and one Hill after another with very few flat, easily runnable sections - and it was made more difficult by the large amount of rain on Friday - very slippery in lots of places, particularly the downhills.  Barry is exhausted but satisfied - looking forward to another 100 in a month. 

Congrats Barry!!! Incredible job.
