Pride Run Race Report/No Whining Version

I often mention that I like our team for the obvious reason that there’s a lot of talent, but more importantly, because it’s a collection of good, positive people. Last weekend’s NYRR Pride Run provided yet another example of that. Some may have noticed that Ken Weingold’s time was not what you’d normally expect from a runner of his caliber. The reason had nothing to do with his recent nuptials (mazel tov Ken), or aging up to the 40-44 AG. ...

Corporate Challenge Race Results

Congratulations to Bridget “Who’s That Girl?” McKenna  (Aetos Capital) who finished the 3.5 mile course in 21:17 (6:05/mile), which was good for 4th place at the Wednesday edition of the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge. And let’s not forget the indefatigable Cirpriana Cuevas (Loew’s Corporation) who finished in a strong 24:20 (6:57/mile). There’s no word as to whether Bridget wore her trademark pearls or Cip wore her signature skirt for the event, but I can only hope so, as it would ...

Long Branch Sprint Tri Race Results

Congratulations to Bobby Dweck on another strong sprint tri performance. Though he tends to prefer the Ironman distance, Bobby finished 13th in a field if 130 and 1st in his age group at the Long Branch Sprint Tri. Bobby has the home court advantage since the course goes by his home, though unlike what I would have done, he didn’t have his friends and family on the porch misdirecting the competition.

Nice work Bobby.
