Brickyarders showed up in force this morning at the Colchester 1/2. Larry Regan gets the prize, crossing in 1:36. Not far behind, Sri Bodkhe, in 1:38. He's volunteering tomorrow at the 10 mile Jones race in Northampton where Tray will double, weather permitting. Speaking of weather, Ultragirl is on WTNH's s**t list because she's been posting to their weather page that their lead meteorologist probably got his weather degree from Sears & Roebuck (not really, but I couldn't resist).
Tray was semi-bummed because she was 5 seconds slower this year than last. Mike Taricani ran somewhere between 2 and 2:10. He's talking about running a marathon as a training run and doing the Redding 1/2 (all pre-50k on April 21). Lea did a 2:10, beating her brief sick down time of the last few days. Tough fitting a 1/2 in when you are trying to get a million dollar grant approved.
Sri gave Lee a hard time about not displaying his standard grimace at the end of the race. He took it easy today and is enjoying experimenting with not running too fast too early. Lani traded places with Tray and Lee and finished in a comfortable 1:56.
Brent couch potatoed due to "apd" (airline passenger disease). We wish him well and think he was smart to sit this one out.
