Weekend Race Report/News You Can Use


A few highlights from the weekend of racing -

* Jen Maranzano won the Reston 10 Miler (or Res10n Miler - yes, this is their preferred name) this Sunday in 64:17. Very exciting race, where Jen bided her time behind the two top women for the entire race, until taking the lead for the first and last time at the 8 mile mark.

Dan Yi was a distant 2 seconds behind Jen at the finish. She outkicked him as he sprinted to the finish so he could experience what it was like to break a finishing line tape.

* Megan Haberle came in second at the St. Patrick's Day 5k (or the St. Patri5k's Day) on Sunday, running 18:13, neck and neck with the women's winner, and edging third place by a couple seconds. Judging by results, a furious sprint to the finish.

Shlomo Fishman (17:27, 10th), Taylor Williamson (17:40, 13th), and Tim Hughes (18:04, 21st) all finished near the top of the standings! Note, Tim did this while also running the 10k right after.

* The St. Patrick's Day 10k also saw lots of action.

Rachel Clattenburg checks in with a 7th overall, sneaking under the 40 minute barrier (39:59). Cindy Conant wasn't far behind, running 40:40 and winning her age group, by a lot. Judy Chen comes in second in her age group with a 40:47.

Among the men, JFK man Matt Wieczorek led the way with a 36:43 (22nd), closely followed by Drew Killian in 37:24 (27th), and doubling crazy person Tim Hughes (39:03, 47th)


I was perusing Running Warehouse today and found a nice deal on Gu if you are stocking up for marathon season. Get a 16-pack (6 Roctane, 10 regular) for $20, and Running Warehouse will add an 8-pack of Roctane for free. If you use your Dojo discount code, that knocks another 15% off, with free shipping. So:

24 total Gus (14 Roctane, 10 regular) for $17
