cleveland marathon and half marathon results

The Rite-Aid Cleveland Marathon was this weekend, and we had a good run of green and blue jerseys in the mix. Jenn Davila, Paul Lentini, Bruce MacDonald, Marty Mason, and Anthony Davila were racing, while Aaron Rood and Jim Lamastra helped a pace group. Anne Callahan and Kevin Krol worked a water stop, and I saw at least two more team members cheering at various places on the route. Special congrats to Brian Stern, who ran the 10k in 35:06 for 19th overall and first in his division.

Bruce wrote a hilarious little report that I don’t think was intended for publication, but is too funny to pass up:

Bruce’s Rite-Aid Report

The Cleveland Half Marathon. I decided to do this race on Thursday, mostly because Nach had a free pass. Haven’t been doing a whole lot of running lately, the travel schedule has been hectic. This race was a great opportunity to get closer to one of my goals for this season, which is to actually fit into my tri top. The course was like my 9th grade girlfriend, flat and fast, and at times crowded. The dream was to get run with the 3:10 marathon group, but after a late show to the start line, that wasn’t happening. I finally caught the 3:20 group at about the 10 mile mark. Big hats off to Nacho, running like he was being chased by INS agents, and coming in at 1 hr 36 min. Paul set a new PR. I didn’t see Marty, but he was flying as usual [ed: He made his goal time of 1:30 by 2 seconds]. Jen had a great run, in spite of Nach’s advise that if she wanted top run a 1: 50″ time that she should get with the 4:20 pace group.
