Race Roundup: Early October

Y’all keep trucking along even as the summer winds down and fall approaches. Going forward, I’m gonna do monthly rounds up as we start to wind down for the race season. Please keep sending your race stuff to either Jess or myself so we can share your badassery with the world!! Here’s what I have to share for the past few weeks.

September 28th – Sam Hartman “Ray’s Race 50k, 7:43, 2nd place, super fucking hot, Mt. Perry Ohio”

September 28th – Dan Kelly and his son, Landon Ran the Maddie’s Mark 5k and Kids run in Schenectady, NY.
Landon and Noah saved a worm and I was able to run ~18:51 for the 5k! (19:12 for 3.16). Awesome event and weather.”

September 28th – Anne Head rocked the Hogsback Half Marathon. The race was “hilly but beautiful. Described on the website as a “fast” course 🤔😬🙆‍♀️” Great job, Anne!! (sorry for missing ya on this update!)

September 29th –  David Houston “✅ 10 Mile PR ✅ Negative split! What a morning at the NYRR Bronx 10 mile. 6:55 pace; 1:09:09.”

September 29th – Julienne Smith took on the Berlin Marathon (ya the Berlin across the pond), “The Berlin Marathon was 26.2 tour of a beautiful city! The crowd support was amazing despite the rain. For vegans, Berlin has some great vegan options :)”

October 3rd – Jaclyn Shockey headed over to Utah for the St George Marathon. “The course was very scenic with all the mountains and red rocks. It was an early 6:45 race start so I was already riding on very little sleep. I managed to run a 3:08:36 when I was struggling the last 10k & with an ankle that has been causing me pain the past couple of weeks.”

October 4th – Jason Mintz tackled the Grindstone 100 in Swoope, VA. “Celebrated my birthday with some trail miles. Finished my 4th hundred-miler (and my second Grindstone) in just over 26 hours.”

October 5th – Joe Burns “Another Indy Half in the books, ended up at 1:36:42 this time around: not my fastest or slowest on this course -just what I had today! I’ll take it. Fun to run on the roads I got kicked off of so many times by MPs skating as a kid. ”

Keep crushing it y’all and we will see you at the end of the month!! Strong Hearts to the FRONT!!!
