BESTING MOLLY

Kicking off with the superlative performance of the weekend.  Molly Huddle’s 1:07:40 at the NYC Half Marathon.

Please, oh please, let at least one male from Nebraska best that time in 2016.

Tough break or at least a painful separation.  Our mate and global gadabout Cameron Cummings suffered a separated shoulder last week.  While dog sledding.  At the Arctic Circle.

He was our fourth for Shamrock Shuffle.  I’ve already started flashing a Golden Ticket hoping to field a qualified replacement, if you’re fast and interested you know the drill.

Big thanks to the hoary and hirsute one for the amplification on Angee Nott’s Masters 400M American Record.  Her time was 55.79.  Craig Christians also points out that he is assisting in getting these marks officially certified, he’s a good guy that way.

State Farm 10 Mile and 5K this past Saturday.  Came and went with results that are relatively consistent in the 5K and trending slower (for the men) over the last 5 years in the 10 Mile.  2016- 54:52/15:43, 2015-54:15/16:22, 2014-55:02/15:53, 2013-52:23/16:06, 2012- 52:32/16:01, 2011-51:54/16:34.

For the ladies the 10 Mile is most consistent with the 5K varying up to two minutes.  2016- 1:02:46/19:39, 2015- 1:02:52/18:38, 2014- 1:01:16/20:55, 2013- 1:02:18/20:12, 2012- 1:02:25/19:39, 2011- 1:02:02/19:46.  ’16, ’12, & ’11’s marks all by Kaci Lickteig.
