Congratulations to any and all City Coachers at today’s NYC Half. Some were shooting for PR’s, some used it as a tune up for Boston or London, some are just rounding into shape, but all performed admirably. The day included some personal bests, and some remarkably smart racing and even pacing. Nice work team.

Nice work by the CCMS contingent who travelled to the scenic Martha’s Vineyard 20-Miler. Sheila Monaghan 2:33:46 (7:51/mile) and Alisa Stern 2:36:46 (7:51/mile) both ran strong, and are setting up nicely for the Boston Marathon.
We had a strong season-opening performance at Sunday’s NYC Runs 10-miler. Deanna Culbreath was tops in the women’s field, running a smart tactical race. Deanna overcame a significant early deficit and ran past all the competition for the win in 1:05:48. Among the men, Jeffrey Dweck finished in 1:05:34 (despite having way too much fun along the way), and City Coach newcomer David Ballasiano ran 1:32:34 in his debut with the team.
Way to start off the season. Congratulations all around.
Congratulations to Dr. Lauri Young on finishing 2nd out of 81 women in her age group at the Mississippi Blues Half Marathon last weekend. Lauri finished in 1:57:48 on the challenging course. Nice work Lauri.
Still more marathon results are rolling in. The latest are from the Brooklyn Marathon
, held yesterday entirely in Prospect Park.
- Anthony Monaghan – 3:55:42
- Carol Chera – 4:32:32 (debut)
Also, congratulations to J. Geoff Badner, who stepped away from his coaching duties long enough to clock a 3:14:59 – good for a PR and a BQ.
Major congratulations to the City Coach contingent who visited the City of Brotherly Love for the Philadelphia Marathon this morning. We had five racers – including two debuts. Sophia, Ken and Isang had to deal with the fact that they had originally planned to run NYC, yet regrouped and ran strong. The team ended the day with PR’s all around.
- Jeffrey Dweck – 3:05:27 (PR)
- Marc Mouhadeb – 3:16:38 (PR)
- Isang Smith – 3:17:25 (debut)
- Ken Weingold – 3:18:55 (PR)
- Sophia Barnathan – 3:23:35 (debut)
Congratulations to City Coach’s Matt Duelka and Liz Corkum, who used yesterday’s Harrisburg Marathon as their Plan B race. Both did us proud. Matt ran 2:55:56 in his marathon debut. Liz was hampered by an injury yet (perhaps against her better judgement) toughed it out and finished in 3:43:17.
(Thanks to Liz Delong for the nifty photo of Matt.)

Congratulations to Bayly Bulkeley for her 3:06:08 at this morning’s Richmond Marathon. Great work despite the extended taper. Great work Bayly.
As many of our NYC Marathoners scatter to find their “Plan B” race, we’ll keep you posted on all the results. This weekend, Ralph Toussie traveled to the Delaware & Lehigh Heritage race for his marathon debut. Ralph ran the challenging course in 3:56:09. Ralph is a City Coach newbie, but a veteran of our Red Hook track program.
Congratulations Mr. Toussie.
Last weekend, the Ohio chapter of CCMS decided if a marathon is fun, a double marathon on trails would be twice as much fun. As such, Kevin Motsch partook in the Run With Scissors Double Marathon, and made (relatively) short work of it. Despite an unscheduled detour off the course for a few miles, Kevin finished second. Congratulations Mr. Motsch
