2013 – September Results

September was a busy month in Turtledom, there were at least 18 different Turtles found in the race results.  Again keep in mind that these results are only results that are on Coolrunning, so if you ran in a race in September and aren’t listed here, please send me an email at rjackman11 at gmail.com.

This month Turtles ran in a variety of races.  There were 5ks, trail race, marathons, ultra-marathons, high school cross country race, canoe race and everything in between.

Some results that I know of that are not listed below are DJ Principe’s first High School Cross Country races.  He ran the freshman race at the injury fund in Burrillville and won by about a minute and a half, setting a new course record by around 30 secs.  DJ also ran his first dual meet and won that as well…I am sure he will keep on rolling well though out the season.

There are many races in the near future for many Turtles.  Marathon season is upon us, the Grog & Dog Jog is 10/13/13, the final NE Pub Series Race is 10/20/13 and the road race calendar for Rhode Island is jam-packed with October races!

What are you planning for the Fall?

PS…Wilson Kipsang broke the marathon World Record yesterday in Berlin…he ran 2:03:23.  Wilson did not pay his Turtle dues this year, but I thought I would mention it anyway.

Pisgah Mountain Trail Race: Story by Patrick Quinn
I wanted to cap off the summer racing season with something a bit different this year and I was due for a destination race. With marathon training on hold for the fall, Ive been putting emphasis on my trail running since June racing a 14 miler in CT. (Nipmuck South) and a 10 miler (Run with the Beavers). Also, Ive been getting into Big River quite a bit. I was able to line up the weekend of September 15 to venture to New Hampshire’s largest state park, Pisgah State Park. Its located in the southwest corner of the state in Chesterfield near Keene State. There were two flavors 23K and 50K. I went with the 23K of course since my mileage is in the mid 40s and has been consistent but not alot of long runs. It was an early morning leaving at 515am with Bob and Jackie. Long ride of 2.5 hours but it was relaxing making note of all the local culture. The weather couldnt have been better, low 40s and bright clear skies. We got there nice an early so no stressing about lines to get bib or go to the bathroom. John Peabody showed up too, for the 50k he reminded me I wasnt running an ultra, lol. After getting settled, Bob and I did just an EZ 1 mile to show me the finish chute area and a stop sign before the last turn. With such great weather conditions, my confidence rose since I was stressing a bit about the 2000 feet net elevation gain. As we lined up, I can remember not really feeling as pumped as I thought I would be. The RD gave us his spiel on the course. It was a wet in sections due to the 5 inches of rain on the previous Thursday but here’s what got my attention: Watch out for bees? What? not bears or other creatures, nope bees. In parallel with that announcement, my caffeine gel kicked in and I was ready! The first almost 2 miles were on roads. It was fast but made sure not to go all out. As we entered, the trail I felt great. The weather helped breathing alot. For the first 6 miles, I ran with a group of 3. I was stronger on the ups than the downs because it was very wet I was a bit cautious. The highlight early on was near 5 miles a runner not too far ahead was yelling some kind of “e” word. As I listened intently, yup he was yelling bees! They were coming up from the ground! As I ran over their “hive”? They were bouncing all over my calves and then I felt the searing of the stingers. The adrenaline was flowing now and we were not too far from one of the courses biggest climbs at 6.5 miles. It was tough but I didn’t die. It was cool getting up to the rocky section of Mt. Pisgah. I felt good knowing I was conquering my first mountain race. It wasn’t until 10 miles that I felt tired, so I went with another gel and soon after I progressed faster each mile as the elevation was mostly down from 11 on. What I was most proud of was when I exited the trail back on the roads with about a mile left, I never died BUT there was one hill left around 13.5. I broke thru that and saw the stop sign Bob showed me and while I was relieved I still felt strong and pulled up a fast finish into the chute. I was satisfied with my effort coming in at 2:00:27, 18th place. Bob did great too coming in at 1:45:38, 4th place. After trading Pisgah “War” Stories” with Bob, Jonny Hammett, and Mike Wade. We headed off to the Gardner Ale House for a hearty lunch and a couple of brews.
