Lysistrata a la PPTC?--Pepper Martin 5Miler
While all the men seemed to be missing, our women took up the flag and carried it accross the finish line, celebrating the 4th with a first place finish for the women's masters team. The familiar triumvirate of Maggie Deschamps, Emily Sanderson and Danielle Hansen combined once again to get the gold, all of them placing individually in their age groups as well.
Hats off to Jimena Barrera, who placed 2nd in her age group w/ a 34:20!! The most impressive part, is that this gal is just learning to race. After showing her speed by setting a course record at the club picnic, this performance over 5 miles wowed everybody.
Corre Kombol, getting over a bug, still managed a 3rd place in her age group.
Frank DeLeo took fifth in 55-59, and along w/ Krishna Kumbhar was one of only 2 male PPTC runners at this race.
Irva Niles, Kathleen O'Rourke, Cristin Flanagan,Charlene Kohler-Briton and Gilant(Jill)Phillips earned their ride back in Tony's van by running well, and completing our PPTC group.
