Race Reports from the Women: Front Runners

From Lauren Carter of the Open: It was a near perfect day.  The temperature was down and the sun was covered by heavy clouds, but the humidity, the humidity remained.  It was a small crew for the Women’s Open Team on Saturday, June 27th as they took to the roads to compete in the FRNY 5M. Photo: Nigel Francis Lead by Andrea Bradshaw, 30:45, the women forged ahead with the thought of taking home team prize money as well delicious popsicles.  Hot on her heels starting from the back of the corral was Nicole Falcaro finishing in 30:47.  Putting her…

Race Reports from the Men: Front Runners

From Greg Cass of the Open: Through the first 4 Club Points races of the year, the Open Men’s team “held serve,” finishing a solid 3rd in each of the distances NYRR has thrown into the mix so far.  Continuing that performance through the summer months can be challenging – vacations, downtime between seasons, tough weather, and too many park loops can all help contribute to the racing equivalent of the summer doldrums.  This past weekend’s 5-mile scoring race, the celebratory Front Runners New York LGBT Pride Run, was a classic “trap race,” but the Open Men fought through challenges…

Race Reports from the Women: New York Mini

  From Lauren Carter of the Open: The saying goes “Ducks fly together.”  ‘Sticking’ to tradition, it was a hot and humid morning as the Women’s Open Team took to the road for the Mini 10K.  As the gun went off, through the first few miles Lady Orange was a literally a PACK of orange with about 7 women running together through the first two miles.  The women’s open proved just how team oriented we are by working together in pairs or packs during the entire race to beat not just their competitors but also the sweltering heat.  Their efforts…

Race Reports from the Men: Retro Four Miler

From Phil Falk of the Open: CPTC men raced well on Sunday at the NYRR Retro 4-Miler. The race was retro, so we dug up the shortest shorts we had and were met with near-perfect late-spring weather. Our top five all sneaked in under 21 minutes, in a strong showing: Matt Lacey 20:26 – He’ll be moving out of NYC later this summer, so going out on a high note! Phil Falk 20:33 – seven second PR, from 2011. Kyle Marks 20:40 – just biding his time… Austin Taylor 20:47 – first road race for CPTC – welcome on board! Stan Berkow 20:57 – not bad for…

Race Reports from the Women: Brooklyn Half

From Alysia Dusseau of the Open: On a warm humid day our Central Park Track Club – NB ladies were able to grab second place behind NYAC in our 3rd scoring race of the year at the Brooklyn Half Marathon!  I think most of us were nervous it was going to rain throughout the whole race but most of us got lucky and finished before the rain came…the rain made for a refreshing walk to baggage!  Cat Beck was our first female finisher (7th overall female) by running a solid 1:17:50, while Aileen Barry ran an impressive 1:19:44.  Alex Bernardi was very close to…

Race Reports from the Men: Brooklyn Half

From Greg Cass of the Open: The long, hard winter of 2014-2015 is now a thing of the past, and CPTC has capitalized on the recent arrival of “spring” (defined in NYC as the fleeting period of time when it’s neither too cold, too hot, too humid, nor too smelly, though often characterized by raging allergens) to fine-tune training and throw down some fast races.  The payoff for that hard work was on display this past weekend in Brooklyn, where the Open Men stormed through Prospect Park en route to Coney Island to comfortably take third place in the Brooklyn…

Race Reports from the Women: Scotland

From Lauren Carter of the Open: In their second race of the road racing Lady Orange brought their best.  Lead by Aileen Conlon’s overall 4th place finish with a time of 36:16, CPTC Women’s Open finished 2nd overall. Not far behind was Ivette Ramirez. Ivette spent a good portion of the week fighting a virus but still manage to set a 70s PR, completing the course in 36:37. Ivette Ramirez Photo: Jay Mojica The record setting continued with our 3rd place scorer, Alex Bernardi. Alex set a 14s PR running the course (and dodging a few people along the way)…
