Transitioning quickly back to his mileage buildup for outdoor track, Andie Colon runs the Claddagh Pub Classic 4 miler at 5:30s for 4th place (out of 410) in a cruising 21:57 on March 4 (results).
At Stu’s 30K, GBTC’s Laura Hayden ran 6:30 miles on a hilly course around the Wachusett Reservoir in the middle of Massachusetts to win the women’s division and place 12th overall in a field of 320 runners. Teammate Megha Doshi started slowly with a 43 min first 10 km and “blew by a million runners” (ok a dozen) to move up to 23rd place. The third place woman ran into the finish ten minutes later. It is safe to say that both women are in the best shape of their lives
The same day, March 4, GBTC’s Lucas Woodward won the North Shore 30 kilometers with Tomaki Uchiki in fifth (results).
