Local elite road-racers are becoming all too familiar with Chris' racing technique, but there's not much they can do about it. Chris is extremely fit right now.
Edmund Burke had another great race, running 26:36. Good for 13th place.
Another great Pacers Event.
GALLAGHER ADDS ANOTHER WIN TO 2012
Kerri's race recap:
Lining up behind Santa, I knew it was going to be a good day!
It had rained pretty heavily that morning, but lightened up by race start. Although there was some windy stretches, I thought the weather was pretty solid for December 9th. The race went out quickly from the gun, but I was able to keep a pretty even 5:30 until the 4th mile. The course had a lot of turns which wasn't ideal for time but ended up being helpful in other ways. The crowd was electric and bursting with holiday spirit! It was a lot of fun to run with elves, reindeer, the Holy Family and (my favorite) the Christmas Story bunny pajama group! Despite the cheery atmosphere I managed to slow down by about 15 seconds in the fourth mile, but pulled it together for an 8k personal best!
Other members of the Pacers New Balance squad finish 3rd, 4th, 6th, and 12th.
Erin Koch and Barbara Fallon Wallace worked together most of the race running times of 28:30 and 28:35 respectively. Erin was instructed by Coach Centrowitz to treat this race like a workout.
Lauren Centrowitz averaged 5:57's for the 8 kilometers, running 29:34.
And Kristi Markowicz was the first Female Master's runner in a time of 31:05.
A great all around day for the Ladies on Pacers New Balance Racing Team.
