The City Coach ladies headed east today, and all came home with impressive hardware from the Hamptons.
In the Hamptons Marathon, Deanna Culbreath was the first overall female, in a time of 3:09:00.
Former overall winner Bridget McKenna was 7th overall and 1st in her age group (and our hearts) in the half marathon, clocking 1:32:23.
Lastly, Isang Smith was the winner of the 5k, in a course record 19:09.
Throw in strong races by future, former and friends of City Coach including Tim Armstrong, Stephen Szycher, Rickey Gawley, Troy Squire and Chris Guerrero, and it was a great day all around. Now if we could just teach Isang to play Connect Four.
The team celebrated our Brooklyn roots with a strong showing at today’s Brooklyn Half Marathon. The race has grown to one of the biggest half marathons in the country, and I’m glad that we had such strong representation today. It was great to see old friends back in the fold, new friends on the team, and everyone in-between.
City Coach athletes made their way to Chicago and did not disappoint.

Congratulations to City Coach’s Luke McCambley (1st overall, 55:23), Bridget McKenna (2nd woman, 1:04:05) and Sarah McWenk (1:33:38) at today’s JackRabbit Battle of Brooklyn. In addition, we had out JackRabbit Beginner Running group (coached by Sarah and Emily Kindlon) in full force at the race. While none of them raced dressed as George Washington, nor did they carry a musket, they all performed admirably.
Great work team.
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 have served to further crush the dreams of the masses behind them.
Nice work ladies.
