At the Races

E Murray Todd Half Marathon 2014

Jackson, Martta and I car-pooled down to the E Murray Todd Half Marathon and I expected that the club would be sparsely represented today.

However I almost immediately ran into many current and past ERC members and Fleet Feeters!

The anticipated snow-storm held off to present us with a cool but not unbearable temperature (35+ degrees) with almost no wind (the race is notorious for unrelenting cross-winds by the open fields).

Congrats to Jackson Bangs for 1st place and Dan Smith for 3rd place in their age groups! An impressive performance for also ran by member Loren McCreesh who I ran with for a few miles before she powered away (4th place age group). In my struggle to keep Loren in sight I managed a sub 1:40 time which also got me 4th age group. Best half marathon for me since 2010!

This was the 34th running of this race and it continues to be a gem of a low key race. The only universal complaint is that it’s not a USATF-NJ points race!
