Middlebury Maple Run

The 8th annual Middlebury Maple Run half marathon (The Sweetest Half) was held Sunday, May in Middlebury. There were 516 finishers.

Top CVR finisher was Dot Martin in 1:36:57 for 1st F 50-59. Four spots back was Tim Heney. Nick Persampieri also ran. Nick Managan ran on a relay team. Did I miss anyone?

For those of you keeping score at home, this was Dot’s third half marathon in four weekends…unless she ran another one that I don’t know about.

Walter Childs Marathon

The 54th Walter Childs Marathon was held Sunday, May 1 in Holyoke, MA. Tim Noonan has run all 54 of them. Not true…but he seems to like this race. There were 108 finishers. Tim was 20th overall in a time of 3:49:08. Tim will be 60 before next year’s Boston Marathon and this result gives him a qualifying time with a nice buffer to spare in his new age group. Tim was the 2nd Vermonter. First Vermonter was David Herr of Canaan in 2nd place overall. I’m sure Tim will sit out the Adamant 20-miler this weekend but don’t be surprised if David jumps in!

George Washington Parkway Classic

The George Washington Parkway Classic was held Sunday, April 24 in Alexandria, VA. There were 5,339 finishers. The point-to-point race follows a scenic 10-mile route on a National Park Service parkway along the Potomac River from the Mount Vernon Estate to Oronoco Bay Park in old town Alexandria. Technically, the course is a net downhill but let’s just agree that Mount Vernon would not be considered a mountain in Vermont. If you know what I mean.

I finished 66th out of 206 in the M 50-54 age group. Andy Shuford finished 58th out of 143 in the M 55-59 age group. (Yes, Andy is older than me. Thanks for asking.) My goal was to run better than I did at Half Marathon Unplugged. I did not really define “better” before the race but I did meet my goal. Andy was coming back from an involuntary lay-off. His goals were to beat his sister and to finish. In that order. Mission accomplished.

Times-Argus NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament

So, anyway…in the last Race Results Round Up, I reported on Allie Nerenberg’s abysmal performance in the Times-Argus NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament pool. Recall that the pool was a chance to match your bracket against two of the T-A’s sportwriters? Well, it just so happens that one of the two sportswriters is Allie’s co-worker. (I am not going to name names but it was NOT Jamie Biggam.) This sportswriter compelled Allie to enter the pool despite the fact that she knows nothing nor cares nothing about basketball. Allie dutifully completed her bracket with random selections. This explains Allie’s dismal performance. But Allie notes that she tied (TIED!) the knowledgeable sportswriter’s score so she is counting this one as a win. Now you know.
