JRunners Half at It

Posted on May 8, 2013 by in Musings | 1 comment

16 JRunners ran 5 different races on Sunday, May 5, 2013. They choose from two distances only: A half or full marathon. 11 chose the half, 5 chose the full, 7 of the 16 PRed, some by as little as :06 seconds (pshew!), some by as much as 5:13 (Wow!), and some had no chance (The Bear Mountain Half has a difficulty rating of 5, terrain of 5, and elevation change of 4 – all out of 5).

Adam Orlow put in years of hard work to earn his squeaker PR; Yaakov Bressler and Joel Mandel – atop the JOTY chart – faced off for the first time, with Yaakov emerging the victor and closing the gap; Avi Blisko continues his half-marathon PR rampage: JRunnerette Eva Rothberg beat all comers in Long Branch; Abe Lebovits got under 2:30 for the first time.

Great show everyone! Your results:
