Notes:
Abby McCabe had – the very day before – placed 2nd
(54:26 – 8:45’s over rks & roots! ) among 26 women in the TARC 10K trail run; Jay Powell continues to improve – 1:21 faster on a tougher course than his last year’s Purple Passion time; Susin & Mike Carlson were ramping it up for the BAA Half; I (T.Abbott) labored to an all-time, 36-year Personal 5K Worst by 0:58 (had some sort of hip problem); Mike Gannon still coming back from bone fractures; Carol Leiter earned her 1st trophy as GFRC member, and in that narrow, first 1/8 mile uphill start, she said she kept getting trapped behind walkers going abreast! Probably many others of us had that problem. (I’ll try to remember to tell everyone next big race to start up near the front.) Just missing a medal were Ted Tyler and Amy Pearl (both 4th); Ro (Roberta) Hagopian did her first GP race that we know of. Jackie Judd (had a PR!), Drew Giovannini, and Karen Friedlander – orig Couch to 5K’ers – are continuing their GP racing! “FTLY” (Faster Than Last Year) were Ted Tyler – by 2:50, and Amy Pearl – by 0:07, and Mark Goldschmidt was MUCH faster – by 4:12. FT2017: Ted Tyler by 7:06, Mary Tyler by 2:12; FT2016: Chad MacDonald by 0:46, Joanne Liburd by 5:21; FT2015: Sue Richardson by 0:16; If anyone ran this who is a current GFRC member but isn’t listed above, let me know here.
