New Year’s Weekend Recap

This past weekend marked the end of 2011 and the begining of 2012.  We had Turtles toe the line on both sides of the New Year.

On December 31st Alan Bernier jumped on the indoor track at the 3rd Mini-Meet at Boston University.  Alan raced in the 3000 meters and finished with a time of 8:55.

On New Year’s Day multiple Turtles headed over to the Hangover Classic 5 Miler in Bristol, RI.  It was an unusually nice day in Bristol this year, which meant nice clear roads to run on.  In the end the Turtles took 10 out of the top 25 spots and won 4 age group awards and the 2nd overall women’s award.

After the race some of these runners and their adoring fans headed over to the Bristol Town Beach to “Take the Plunge”.  It was a nice way to bring in the New Year.

A little further north on New Year’s Day, Martin Tighe was testing out his speed at the Millennium Mile in Londonderry, NH.  Martin finished in a time of 4:47.

4th Annual Nooseneck 18K, Dec 26th

SEE IMPORTANT UPDATE

Last year’s Nooseneck 18k was curtailed to a 5 mile race due to the seriously nasty blizzard that befell Rhode Island on the 26th of December, and boy was it blizzard conditions, but the four Turtles…

 

  • Bob Jackman
  • Dave Principe
  • John Peabody
  • Myself (Sir George)

…who attended this race refused to run the shortened race and we all ran, with a bunch of other crazies, in the white-out conditions. It was an incredible run and is easily in my lifetime top 10 runs.

This year’s race is again on the day after Christmas. The is a great event put on by Mike Tammaro of the Narragansett Running Association, check out the information flier.

I, for one, will be there.
