The Rogue Racers had another great weekend of racing.  The results are still coming in, but Keith took 4th overall yesterday at the Green Circle 5K in Winchester and 2nd overall today at the ATMUF 5K in Vienna.  Tom and BethAnn set some amazing PR's at the Woodrow Wilson Half Marathon this morning and Barefoot Bob paced me to a 4th place overall female finish and my first division win this morning at the ATMUF 5K.  Check out the nice photo below of the Marymount students and the Vice President of the Virginia Physical Therapy Association (also a Marymount grad) with Keith in a Marymount T-shirt at the ATMUF 5K.

  1. Way to run Rogues! I had a blast today running with you guys. Marymount's PT program did a great job making everything go smoothly.

  2. Yes! but proudly wearing my MUPT shirt. You guys should see the Under Armour SUPT sweats they were wearing in Winchester. I might need to get a sweatshirt and represent.

  4. Holly and Keith, great job to the both of you today on the run. I was a good time. Holly, you forgot to mention that you set a PR! Oh, and don't forget the snazzy prize I won as well!!! It was a good day for the Rogueracers.

  5. Just found out that Vegas R'n'R marathon has sold out. I am now thinking Kiawah Island Marathon DEC 11th instead.

    Bob-Thanks for the Subway gift card and congrats on the PR!

  9. Ok, so I have no clue what is going on with the Potomac River Running and the ATMUF race results. I'm certain I got a PR, and I stopped my watch a bit late. I had 23:43 on my watch and they have me at 22:18! I'm thinking they had a glitch and lost a minute at 23 or 24 mins. My real time is probably closer to 23:18. I stopped my watch late, so perhaps stopping it about 20-30 seconds late is believable. Is it possible that they had a glitch at the 23-24 minute mark?!? Maybe that's why your chip never registered Holly, as you probably came in at around that time...you weren't far behind me. They have a 47 year old lady coming in at 23:40. I remember seeing her cross the line too. She was just slightly behind us. Also, if you look at the men's race results, NO ONE came in between 23-24 minutes. That minute is lost in some time/space continuim somewhere.

    Keith, was your time accurate?

    Either way, if they did mess this up, does it mean I still get to keep my new PR at 22:18?

  10. I may be able to arrive at the track a little early tonight. I want to get it over with.... LOL!! See everyone there.

  11. I think my time is correct. I think you're right Bob. Something happened with their sensors between 22 something and 24 something.
    Have fun on the track everyone. I'll be doing another 8 to 10 on the dreadmill tonight. Got 8 in late last night and the legs were in a lactic acid post 2 race slow mode.

  12. Just saw the Wilson 1/2 results! Congrats to all the finishers and the big PRs.

  14. also your comment on lactic acid made me think of this:

    and this:

    poor lactate...so misunderstood.

  15. Matt Fitzgerald is my new hero. Bring on the lactate! If only I could figure out my optimal race weight I'd like him even more.

    Three bridges scares me just because of the name. I need to get on marathonguide and read about St. Jude.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I heard 3 bridges was flat...but who knows.

    ReplyDelete
  17. It's flat but looks like it should be the 3 bridges over and over and over and over again marathon. Looks like it's several shorter distance out and back trips.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Seriously thinking about St. Jude's.

  19. Interesting new Garmin for you Tri people. I'm not a good enough swimmer to justify buying something like this, but it looks like a good training tool:
