Notes: Ted Tyler was just getting over a summer flu, but still geared himself up enough to take photos of everyone running the mile (after running/walking it himself in an official early Start). Mary Tyler had other ongoing medical problems but still took other photos; Bruce Hardy traved all the way from his new Quincy digs to do both the fastest mile and fastest 200 meters, but Arnie Pollinger still had the best 200m age-graded time (26.53) in this GFRC event as he has done consecutively for what – 11 years now?! Bob Mayer had the highest WAVA% – a 77.65 in the mile! (‘Course he’s a young 63!); new member Carol Leiter, 71, ran her first mile-on-a-track race and her first 200 meter race ever – so of course each is now a personal record! Anita Yip also ran PR times – 39.02 in 200m and 7:33 in mile (after first 200m at 5:30 or so pace!) Abby McCabe was our first woman in both the mile (6:14) and 200m (34.43), but was edged out age-gradedly by both Rong Hu (53) and Darlene Dearden (43) – see their fine stats above. FOUR were among the original participants in the original 2006 Mile & 200 Meter Challenge: Arnie Pollinger, Sue Ericson, Ted Tyler, and Tom Abbott.
