Week of 10/10/11 - 10/16/11

The race results are still coming in, but we already have great times posted for this weekend.  Adam ran 2:13:11 at the "Stonewall" Jackson 20-Mile Ambulance Run this morning.  The course measured a bit long at 20.2 miles, but he still managed a great time and 3rd place overall.  Adam's sister also set a 17 minute PR this morning in her second marathon just nine months after giving birth to her fourth child.  Peter and Sean both raced the Anthem Great Pumpkin 5K in Reston.  Peter ran 18:58 for 3rd in his division and Sean ran 17:28 for 3rd in his division as well.  I will post race times for the Steamtown Marathon tomorrow as soon as they are available.

If you haven't registered for the Goblin Gallop yet, please note that you have to be registered on the team prior to packet pick-up.  I've been able to recruit a couple of new runners, so it looks like we are really shaping up to have a great team (and hopefully the largest).  It will be great PR for our spring race, so please join the team if you are able.  When you register, put "Rogue Racers" as the team name and "organization" as the category.  Hope to see everybody there.

If you voted on a race name, you're going to have to re-submit your vote.  It was brought to my attention that Gone Rogue 5K is way too similar to Going Rogue, which is part of the title of Sarah Palin's book.  So please re-submit your vote using the poll to the right.

Happy training, 



  1. Good job to all the Rogues that raced over the weekend. I was eating, sleeping, and eating all weekend down in rainy Orlando thinking about you guys as I continued to eat even more. Congrats to Dr. Bob, BethAnn, Tom, and Hannah for the great runs in Steamtown (I heard it was warm). Adam, 2:13 is awesome and I can't wait to see what you accomplish in Richmond. Sean and Peter, 7th and 15th overall, with the names that I saw on the finishing list, is great. Now get back to training! I'm going to get something to eat.

  2. Great job team! Very impressed by everybody's times. Perfect weekend for a race.

  3. Nice times for all the Steamtown Marathoners!! fast, fast, fast!!

  4. Keith will be trying to burn off all the extra pounds next weekend at the heritage half. In all seriousness though, he will likely finish with a doughnut in each hand (and a 1:18).

  5. I hope they have doughnuts! I'm not used to racing these long distances and doughnuts are way better than GU. Coffee at mile 10 might be good as well.

  6. If you haven't seen this, check out this biker in S. Africa...

    Should we lump antelopes in with Honey Badgers?

  7. Heading out to FHS this evening around 8:45-8:50 for 8-10 miles.

  8. They played that video on NBC the other night and with the commentary I was nearly on the floor b/c it was so funny. The slow motion video is crazy. That Antelope was huge!! All he had was some scrapes and a stiff neck.
