Brent placed 18th out of 185 at the Glastonbury River Runners Firecracker 5k this morning. Ran a 23:27. Good enough to get him 2nd in his division. Lee managed to place 2nd in his division w/ a 28:27. Not great for sure, but getting back into it.

Brent nails it. Taricani runs Willington PTA 5k.

I guess "Slackin'" no longer applies. Mr Stratton emailed me :

Lee, I ran a 7:54 pace on a warm morning (low 70's??). Caught Peter H. last mile and beat him by a few seconds.

He ran the Delaney Dash 4 miler this morning, a very competitive race.

Looks like Mike did a 5k this morning. Willington PTA 5k.

Your blog manager is not racing these days. Did take in the Memorial Day Parade in Newington after an easy 3+. Learned from the father of my tutee that this is the largest parade in all of Connecticut. Spotted Erin at the head of the Marching Band and Robyn Errickson and her son (Kenpo Karate).

Three Days at the Fair / Newington Library 5K / Bobby's Run


Tray texts:

"Joe did 176 miles in 72 hours. Not quite as much as his 201 from last year BUT he RAN the last 15 miles at a sub-9 pace."

"Placed 1st female, though there were only 3 other females who ran and at different times so technically not able to place. I did 34 miles in 6 hours and the closest female to me did 25. 1st male had 38 miles, so not too shabby.


Brent ran an excellent 5k (23 and change) this morning in Newington. Bob Dacey and Paul Dicke joined the very competitive 60s runners.

1/4 Marathon, Lyme



Our very own Ms Lea Crown, RD of HTC's 1/4 marathon, at work. Thank you Mike Taricani for the pic. Mike ran it.

From the raincoats etc. it looks like it was a wet one. Lee ran in Lyme where it rained hard, especially at the awards which, unfortunately, got messed up. Hilde Heck put on a great race.

Note: The races in Middletown and Glastonbury were postponed due to the predicted high winds / snow.
