Woz victorious in a blazing 800m run
By Nancy Tinari
Warren McCulloch proved once again that masters athletes can stay speedy with smart, consistent training. At the B.C. Masters Track & Field meet held in Langley, Warren took the lead in the 800m race right from the gun. According to plan, he ran 59 seconds for the first 400m. A fellow competitor followed him gamely for 600m, but Woz broke clear to win in a time of 2:02.55. This time age-grades to 91%! It is all the more impressive considering that Warren led the whole way, under windy conditions.
Never one to shy away from competition, Woz also contested the 400m race. His time of 56.09 was very respectable for his second race of the day, but he reports that he was second to a competitor in an older age group!
Watch out for more track action coming up, as Warren and other Phoenix runners will be competing in the Hershey Harriers All-comer’s Meet #2 on Tuesday, June 22 at the Percy Perry Stadium at Coquitlam Town Centre.
Longest Day 5K
Friday, June 18, 2010 @7:45 pm
A small group of Phoenix members competed in this year’s edition of the Longest Day 5K, the 12th event in the Timex Series. It was a notable night for Phoenix families, as husband/wife team Larry Lorette and Maureen Curtin ran personal bests of 17:57 and 21:06. Maureen’s time was good enough to earn her 3rd place in the women’s masters category. Both runners were beaming after the race, as you will see if you look at George’s race video (on the blog at www.phoenixrunning936thermal.blogspot.com ). The three-member Frilund family team was impressive, as Adam beat his dad Dave for the first time in a while, though not by much! Their times were 18:40 and 18:43. New runner Cindy Frilund, completing her 3rd 5K race, cut a chunk off her previous time with a 28:53.
Anna Hilborn ran strongly (yes, those 2K loops in the park are working!) but was sorry she didn’t quite break 20:00 with her 20:04 clocking. Joey Gargaro wasn’t far behind Anna in 22:12. Ruby Ferguson is coming back well after knee surgery and was pleased with her time of 24:37.
Once again, it was a fine sunny evening out at UBC, with
a cool temperature ideal for running. To view complete race results (as well as
results for the companion 10K race), go to www.winningtime.ca .
