Winning! Pictured after the Race for Recovery on Sunday are: Me (Heather Cass), kneeling — first master & 4th woman overall in the Race for Recovery 15K…woohoo!); In back from left, Pat Krott, ( 2nd overall in the Beat Beethoven 5K on Saturday with a 19.41 AND 4th overall in the Race for Recovery 15K with a 1:06), Renee Uht (3rd 40-49 at the Beat Beethoven with a 25:36 AND 1st Female Master at the Race for Recovery 5K with a 27:13); Tom Twohig (3rd place 55-59 at the Run for Recovery 15K with a 1:24); and Tom Bourne (1st place 50-54 in the Race for Recovery 5K with a 25:59 AND 5th place in the 50-59 at the Beat Beethoven with a 24:42).
Yeah…that’s right, three of them up there had raced TWO days in a row. Crazy.
We enjoyed perfect racing conditions on both Saturday & Sunday this past weekend (Oh, please let it last till the Her Times race this Saturday!!)
Here’s your weekend racing round up:
SATURDAY, Sept. 24
Allegheny Swimming & Diving 5-miler results here.
Rambler Classic race results here (Check out the Cass girls’ results in the 3rd & 4th grade XC results….I’m a proud running mamma).
SUNDAY, Sept. 25
Wine Fest Stride & Stop 5K results here.
Run for Recovery 15K/5K results here. Much to my surprise, I did very well at the 15K (for me), coming in 4th overall and taking 1st place Master. Racing without headphones seems to be working well for me (um, so does the being-40 thing). I did spend the last three miles occupying (distracting) my mind by singing “99 bottles of beer on the wall” in my head. Only later did I laugh at the irony singing that as I ran the recovery run.
