A look at the start before the runners lined up.

This race is an event. Wandering around the center you could easily see this event was fully prepared with food and drink, from Budweiser to Muscle Milk with a side of ice cold water in between. Some of the other events closed up shop with the record heat wave this week but Pacers knew that runners are a tenacious bunch.

They knew they would be coming in record numbers. Some would be reveling in the fact that it was so hot. Last weekend Rockville Rotary Twilight 8k proved that a well planned can handle just about anything. Those who did not know they could not handle it… handled it. Michael Wardian coming off a treadmill marathon the night before was all smiles before launching into a solid 16:24 that made him the top submaster.

Wardian, (left) among a long list of Chuck Moeser fans, echoed his credo that anything is possible just go after it was zest. Mega mile Mike has already qualified for the Olympic Trails qualifying PR at Grandmas (2:17:49). Still, he was justly even more proud of his third place finish at the where few dare to tread Bad Water Ultra Marathon where he ran 135 miles in 26:22.

Steve Hallinan, winner of last fall’s Capital Running Company Veterans Day 10k in 29:54, was the clear favorite as the massive field pressed across the starting line. Make no mistake even with tough conditions; this field like past years is packed with elite runners.  Last year was nearly as hot as Julius Kogo hosed the field with an incredible 14:03. This year while much of the field was winding past the finish line at the halfway of the double out and back course, Hallinan was easily winning in the 11th time in the first four years that was faster than 15:00.

Seventy meters back Birhanu Feysa glanced nervously over his shoulder like he was making a jail break. Then he turned back realizing that he had number two in the bag with a swift 15:02. The next three came in with a rush, led by Fasil Bizuneh of Flagstaff, AZ.  Frank Devar had his fastest time of three races in 15:10 though the first two years was a slightly different course that was perhaps slightly hillier.

This course is pancake flat though runners seem pleased by the downhill (maybe a foot) in the first mile versus the dreaded last mile (maybe two feet up hill). Maybe there were just a little more heated then ya think?

Fifth place Andrew Dumm may have felt the heat even more as the last two years he had been well under 15:00. His time of 15:13 was just ahead of Bert Rodriguez who had been faster than 15:00 when he won it all at the Clarendon 5K last fall.

The top master was no surprise though it was well off Edmund Burke’s overall win at the Crystal City Friday race in the spring. Anytime you have 25 men faster than 17:00 who know you have a competitive race.

For the women, before the race Alisa Harvey, 45, was alluding to how hard hot weather can be on racers. Modest but realistic, when she is not expecting to be the overall winner, you know you have a tough field. Last year another masters runner Elena Orlova won it all in 17:20, and she was 20th overall. Did we mention that it was hot this year? After the race Harvey was asked if she saw Orlova. Her answer was “Briefly at the start and then whoosh!”

Tezata Dengarsa has been dominating all year winning the spring rankings. She raced Pike’s Peek in 33:59 while Orlova has been regrouping for the first six months of the year and had a tepid race there in 38:12. Last week she ran the Twilight 8K to a masters victory in 29:36 but Dengarsa had a 5K victory in June at 16:42. At the gun Dengarsa pulled away to win in 17:11. That was the same time that Orlova ran in 2009 to finish third overall.

This year Erin Koch moved ahead at the finish in 17:36 to edge Orlova (17:38) and hard charging Lisa Thomas (17:41). Thomas had been third overall last week in Rockville with 28:47 so it is clear that Orlova is making her way back to the full speed that earned her the highest ranking for a master runner in 2010.

Alisa Harvey (left) is at her best in the first mile of a race with world class middle distance speed. Still her masters win in 18:34 would have made all but seven of the women jealous. She had been third overall in the inaugural year with 17:42.

For the grandmasters, Jean Christophe Arcaz continues to make it look easy with a blazing 18:25. Heather Sanders, 56, whipped all the runners 50-59 by at least a minute, and there were appropriately fifty of them.

Before the race runners were continuously warned about the heat. There were two water stations on the course as well as and sponge station and a mist making machine. We all sweated copiously anyway. At the finish there were many barrels of iced water bottles. Eager runners clustered around the first couple of barrels which were refilled a number of times. Smarter, stronger runners moved past them to the still full and ultra chilled barrels further back.

Just past the liquid was the food tent. After runners walked through grabbing chips and fruit there was a Muscle Mile stand. Following that was the McCafe truck and then the King of Beers as runners circled back around to their bag check area. Hundreds hung around listening to the invigorating music. Now the breeze seemed almost cooling in the shaded park in the middle of the square. That is where the awards started promptly at 9:30.

With plentiful free parking and all these amenities, it is no wonder why this twilight race continues to grow.

In the Lea Gallardo photo above, Laura O’Hara powers to the win with top 40-44 winner Matteo Mainetti on her shoulder and racing legend Alisa Harvey a few strides behind.

Runners in this region say the best way to prepare mentally for a summer race is to expect the absolute worst. In that event, more than 1,500 runners who participated in Capital Running Company’s inaugural Let Freedom Run 5K only had to deal with conditions that were roughly par for a rolling course: Independence Day morning offered overcast skies, temperatures below 80 degrees, and a humidity level which – around here, anyway – would only qualify for the not-so-bad category.

Wearing the No. 1 race bib, Aaron Church, 35, of South Riding, VA set the early pace from the start in Fairfax Corner Shopping Center in Fairfax, VA. The Potomac River Running racing team member proceeded to race head to head with Jordan McDougal, brother of former NCAA champ Josh McDougal, for most of the opening mile. (Although the race itself was new, the roller coaster ride-like course was familiar to those who had run the annual Goblin Gallop.)

By 2K, McDougal, 24, (left) had established a narrow gap he would more or less hold the rest of the way. He won the race in 15:46, with Church only 11 seconds back. Bennett Stackhouse, 27, of Arlington, VA took 3rd in 16:19.

McDougal graduated from Liberty in 2008 and now works for The Running Store in Gainesville, VA. For Let Freedom Run, the store put together a seven-person team that also included McDougal’s wife, Leah.

“You can never be disappointed with a win,” said McDougal, who only recently resumed full-time training following a break from an ultra-filled spring season. He won the 50-miler at the North Face Endurance Challenge in Bear Mountain, NY in May and was second to Matt Woods of Falls Church, VA at June’s 50-mile North Face Endurance Challenge Mid-Atlantic Regional in Washington, DC.

The women’s race was a close one, too. The winner, Laura O’Hara, 31, of Alexandria, VA was running with a pack of men in the final mile when she heard someone cheer for the well-known – not to mention speedy – Alisa Harvey, 45, of Manassas, VA.

“I tried to get on my horse and hold her off,” O’Hara said.

O’Hara won in 18:23. Harvey, the clear-cut taker of the female masters’ crown, clocked 18:29. Jacqueline Gruendel, 36, of Clifton, VA claimed third in 18:44. In photo left, she leads top 45-49 finisher Matt Anderson to the finish.

The Let Freedom Run 5K was O’Hara’s third 5K of the summer and she admitted afterward that she was hoping to run closer to 18 minutes. Still, all things considered, coming as it did at the end of a long holiday weekend, O’Hara said she was happy to pick up the win. Her husband, Dave O’Hara, 35, (below) was fourth overall in 16:44.

Chuck Moeser, 59, of Sterling, VA took the masters title in 17:42, a time that also put him seventh overall.

Numerous runners celebrated the July 4 race – a sendoff to barbecues, parties and fireworks – with red, white, and blue racing uniforms, American flag bandanas, and all sorts of patriotic headbands.

In fact, for some veteran runners, July 4 is the one day they break out what might very well be the finest in old school-meets-patriotic running shorts their collections have to offer.

Racing two weeks shy of his 80th birthday, Larry Dickerson of Burke, VA (325th, 29:13) broke out red, white, and blue shorts he only wears once a year.  A runner of nearly 50 years, Dickerson recalled that he got the shorts “somewhere along the line” while a member of Lockheed Martin’s corporate team.

John Carmichael, 49, of South Riding, VA (76th, 22:21) recalled that he picked up his own pair of red, white, and blue racing shorts sometime in the late 1980s. At Let Freedom Run, Carmichael raced alongside numerous friends as well as family, including his 21-year-old nephew, Dave Carmichael of Grantham, NH.

Dave Carmichael was in town to celebrate his grandmother’s 80th birthday, he said. He ran his first race, a marathon, in January.

“I’m passing on the family torch,” said John Carmichael, who was passed by his nephew with two turns to go. “He’s now the best runner in the family.”

Regarding best-runner-in-the-family status, with Dennis and Kathleen Hogan, both 57, the race is still too close to call. The Annandale, VA couple finished their third 5K together today in about 36 minutes. Since mutually deciding to become more active, the Hogans have been entering 5Ks while training together four or five mornings per week.

Perhaps it was the race’s first-timers division that attracted so many new runners. Among them was Eric Korn, 33, who finished his first 5K in 36:41. “Three months ago I could barely run 60 seconds,” he said.

The Harrisonburg, VA resident ran the race with his father, Bill Korn, 66, of Fairfax. His dad, Korn said, ran marathons in 28 states, his 50-state goal eventually disrupted by hip issues. Korn, who got started with a “Couch to 5K” plan, now dreams of picking up the quest where his father left off.

This was the first race in the Capital Running Race Series, which will culminate with the Veterans Day 10K on November 13 and the Jingle All the Way 10K on December 11. Participants can accumulate points for top 10 overall finishes and for placing in the top ten for three masters age group categories, 40-99 – master, 50-99 – grandmaster, & 60-99 – senior. Runners gain additional premium points by finishing in the top ten of division younger than their own.

Combining all three races the awards will go five deep in the open and three deep in the three age groups.

Sponsors for the Let Freedom Run 5K included Mission Springs, a local water company that produces biodegradable bottles; Uncle Julio’s Mexican restaurant, which awarded all racers a $10 gift certificate for race day; Crunch Fitness; Giant; Fairfax Corner, and California Pizza Kitchen.

For the Washington Running Report

Virginia Pons moves past the starting line at the first loop.

The Potomac River Twilight 4 mile race has built a solid reputation as a family event. While providing some of most competitive races at this less than common distance, the well attended mile fun run and all the entertainment after the event keep the race high in recidivism. While the classic rock band Dolley Sodds was warming up, event director Ray Pugsley was scurrying around filling a kid’s pool with ice to cool off the many different kinds of liquid refreshment awaiting the returning road warriors. Everyone knows that in this region June is really summer no matter what the calendar says. Pugsley was smiling as he said, “We dodged a bullet.” Indeed, after two record setting days in the last week, this year’s temperature in the low 80s seemed almost kind.

Owning the fourth fastest time of 20:07 from his runner-up spot in 2009 made Aaron Church, 35, the favorite. Church (left takes the final strides) was coming off a top ranking in the winter in his division and he was feeling good. Still, nobody told the other racers that he would win. On the way back past the starting line at about 2K in the race Church was riding easily in the back of a pack of seven racers. They had cruised through the opening mile in 4:49, which would put them on pace to take on Steve Crane’s event record of 19:47 from 2008. The race announcer keep the finish line informed by radio as they pushed through the next mile still sub 5:00.

Though perhaps the kindest day of the first five years, the race was really heating up, in more ways than one. After the race was done Church noted that he did not have a real speed, [not] and he made his break about 2.5 miles into the event. He did not want to leave the race to a sprint at the end. As the pack broke up a couple of the racers called it quits and dropped. Kent Pecora was from North Carolina and an unknown, clinging to the pace. Hugh Toland had won three races in the spring including a 15:45 5K. Ryan Deak had two wins and a 15:44 5K. As the runners came in view for the final two hundred meters, it was clear that Church would prevail. Church’s only race in the spring was a third overall four mile race in 20:43. This time he improved his pace to take it all in an event age group record 20:25. Pecora was next in 20:38. Deak looked really tired for a man moving so fast and settled for third place cash at 20:46. Toland was fourth in 21:02.

Coming up form the south was Williamsburg’s John Piggott. Piggott, 46, (left) as always, is training for the half marathon where he seems to excel the best. He had run 14 miles in the morning but “no one was pushing” him. As it turned out, he ended up in no man’s land in the race with no one within sight of him on either side. He did not even feel the pressure to press at the end. Still, he slipped in past the former course record held by the formidable Ted Poulos (22:42 – 2007) with a fine 22:30. That is the second fastest master time behind Darrell General’s 21:28 set in 2007.

Elite grandmaster George Buckheit (below) had the third fastest 50 and older time and one of the best lifetime racing résumés in the region – PR of 13:43 for 5K and 28:39 for 10K. Still, he just laughed when asked if he was going to break the tape this time. New minted grandmaster Jean Christophe Arcaz is a prolific racer and he always seems to do his best when the competition is tough. During his forties he and Ted Poulos had scores of close battles. This time he took the top grandmaster spot in 23:42 for 13th overall. The grandmaster best was set by Chuck Moeser in 2009 with 23:15.

Former age group winner Richard Adams, 60, was too tired to look around to see that nobody was close as he won by nearly three minutes In 26:54. His daughter was out on the course racing as well. Meanwhile Jason Page, 66, an age group record holder was on hand to watch his daughter race as well. She sure looked good racing. Page was at the Cascades Firechase 10K to watch another daughter win it all last month. Page will be back on the roads in time to take a shot at returning his rankings crown this summer.

In the morning the Lawyers have Heart race was turned into a 5K because of the heat. That was okay for Bob Gurtler, 76, of the Plains, VA. He had already run 35 of them this year. Still, by evening he was already itching to put in some more miles, winning his age group.

When John Piggott heard the top woman coming in he perked up his ears. Did they say Williamsburg? He knew he would know all the top racers from his hometown. Darcy McDonald led a well spaced line of young runners to the finish line. She ran the event’s third fastest time, 23:07.  Laurel Jefferson followed in the sixth fastest time with 23:35. Third place went to Margie Shapiro with the seventh fastest time in 23:53. Only eight women have broken 24:00 on this course.

Shapiro is a =PR= owner. Her fine race was her first race in several years.

Master winner Linda Foley will soon be fifty. Finishing sixth in 25:49 she was not far off her overall winning time form the first year, 2007, when she ran 25:23. For the grandmasters, Liza Recto had just turned 55 and she thought she had a chance to medal. When the called her name as first in 32:02, she learned the she was top grandmaster as well, not far of the 55-59 record of 31:36.

On each runner’s bib was an F tag for food and a B tag for beer.  Beer of course only went to adults but the burritos from Moe’s Southwest Grill went to all the runners. There were all kinds of juices, water, and soda as well as doughnuts, cookie, chips. Nobody was going to leave hungry.  As the band started up, hundreds of runners mingled around the circus-like venue. There was a dunk tank and moon bounces, and the soft ice cream stand quickly formed a line.

When the awards were being announced, many of the runners were still eating and drinking. It sure is wonderful to get the awards so fast that everyone is still there to get them. While the race totals very with the temperatures over the years. This year’s 989 four mile finishers combined with the fun runners to more than 1100 participants which are very close to the most ever.

Year number ten for this runner friendly race featured the year’s nicest weather. Mother’s Day weekend is usually the busiest of the spring with more than fifty races scheduled in the region. This race was a dandy. Joining this lovely neighborhood was for this year’s continued renaissance was the indefatigable Chuck Moeser, 59, of Sterling, VA (left). Never timid and always bare-chested even on cold days, some have speculated that he does not like shirts at all. Not so, after the race he was sporting a tie dye cutoff from the sixties.

For this smallest race of around 200 finishers, even at 59, Moeser was the prohibitive favorite to win it all. After the race, he noted that he really enjoyed the downhill first mile. He had to do it all alone because by the first intersection, 200 meters in the race, he was gone. Though new to the course, there was no chance to get lost. The course meanders through the neighborhood streets, with a nary a moving vehicle to be found, but the signage was so clear even the novice runner could not get lost.

The final mile of the course was the only place where there was anything resembling a hill. Moeser cruised in with a very solid 17:54 that was clearly a win, not a charge for a fast time. Third place David Rauser, 39, was the youngest runner in the top five by five years. Runner-up Peter Coppolino, 44, pulled away from him to finish in 19:42, a third of a mile behind Moeser.

Sarah Draper, 37, (right) rushed out with the leaders in the opening quarter mile. After that she settled back into the second pack running around a 7:00 pace. Colleen Seres, 34, stuck with her for nearly two miles before giving way. Trudy Dalton, 25, finished soon after her. Draper had finished third in 2009. Last year she won in 20:14, the fourth fastest runner overall and ahead of this year’s men’s runner-up. Coppolino returned the favor this year.

Laurel Clement, 62 of Haymarket, VA edged out Robin Lott, 43, of Centreville, VA for the top masters spot in 26:06. She was sixth overall and the only woman with a Ranked Runner qualifying time. Most everyone else was having too good a time to hurry.

The race was family oriented with a number of youngsters joining with parents to race. The awards featured three divisions 19 and younger. Of the older runners, the omnipresent Bob Gurtler, 76, of the Plains, VA was finishing his 50th race of the year, 28th 5K in a very solid 30:00.

The event had two walks that followed a slightly different course but runners returning to the ChronoTrack mats at the finish line passed many of the walkers. The road was plenty wide enough with the volume of runners so that there was no hint of crowding between events.

The team event was won by the NVRA runners led by Draper who won the women’s race.

It is an Irish blessing familiar to many, “May the road rise up to meet you, May the wind be always at your back, May the sun shine warm upon your face . . .”

When Laurence Simms from the Embassy of Ireland welcomed runners to the starting line with this traditional blessing, it had new meaning for race organizers, Capital Running Company. They were blessed with the highest turnout in the 23-year history of the St. Patrick’s Day 8K as more than 5,500 finishers kicked off the spring racing season with this favorite downtown Washington, DC event.

After winning this race two years ago and finishing fourth last year, local star Demesse Tefera (photo) captured his second St. Patrick’s Day 8K title today in 24:22, holding off Oklahoma’s Mark Thompson who took second in 24:28.

The Washington, DC resident by way of Ethiopia said he split from the lead pack after passing the opening mile in 4:50. He felt like the pace was too slow, he said, gapped the lead pack and ran solo the rest of the way. And though his time was well off his 8K personal best of 23:07, Tefera described today’s effort as “good training” for March 26’s National Half Marathon where he hopes to break 1:05:00 in the half marathon.

Jordan McDougal of Culpeper, VA took third in 24:44, five seconds ahead of course record holder Gurmessa Megerssa.

In the women’s competition, the top two finishers from Washington, DC took off from the rest of field battling for top honors. Tezata Dengarsa, 30, (left) bested the defending champion, Maggie Infeld, 24, by half a minute, 28:03 to 28:32. Behind them it was an even closer battle for the next two spots between Muliye Gurmu, 27, from Bronx, NY and Katie O’Regan, 26, from Lebanon, PA.

“She (Gurmu) was on my shoulder for most of the race and then just surged ahead,” said O’Regan, a Cornell standout, now racing for the PA-based Keystone Track Club.

Douglas Woods, 41, of Gaithersburg, MD took top place in the 40-44 age group with his 29:33 finish; a nice 5:55 pace. On the cusp of sixty, Chuck Moeser (below) returned to the racing scene after a long hiatus finishing in 30:18. Afterward, he shared that he thoroughly enjoyed his time exploring skydiving and rock climbing, but now he is looking forward to some road racing.

Jack McMahon earned the title of the oldest competitor. At 80 years old, the Silver Spring, MD runner crossed the line in 45:29, besting his time from last year by 28 seconds. Just goes to show, you truly can get faster as you get older.

Leesburg’s Peggy Yetman, 42, easily won the women’s 40-44 age division with her 31:20 finish. Alisa Harvey, 45, from Manassas finished eighth overall in 30:12. Next up for the Washington Running Report columnist is a track meet in Richmond in a few weeks. Washington, DC’s Jacqueline O’Neil, 79, the oldest women’s competitor, was asked if she felt the luck of the Irish today. She admitted that she’s IBM (Irish By Marriage), but attributed her good health and longevity to supplementing her low running mileage with walking.

New to this year’s event was the Team Competition and 42 Coed Teams competed with creative names like, “The Furious Leprechauns” and “Sham-Rockers.” The TRS Racing Team of Jordan McDougal, Joseph Delclos, Alisa Harvey, and Ellins Thomas, were the overall champions in 28:57. No one could miss the 60+ members of the FBI National Academy Team. Per their captain, Mark Jackson, it was a great way to conclude a 10-week training program.

For many participants, not only was it the first race of the season but their first foray into road racing. Beth Roselius, from Morgantown, WV (in photo below-right) decided to run with and support her sister, Katherine Kelley, 28, from Reston, VA, a newbie. Dressed in matching blue tops and sporting St. Patrick’s Day 8K tattoos on their cheeks, both said they were thrilled to share the experience. “I wasn’t sure if I could make the distance,” said Kelley, “but she [Beth] kept telling me, ‘You can do it!’”

Rehau Rotary Resolution 10K Adventure Race 
Mild Weather for Tenth Anniversary 
By James Moreland
Janaury 1, 2007
Leesburg, VA
For the Washington Running Report

In the photo below, the lead pack crosses the first ditch down the opening mile.

The Rotary Resolution 10K has been a challenging race from the start. The course is more cross-country than road. After charging down the grass covered field for the first quarter mile, runners get a taste of blacktop for a couple hundred meters. Then “the road is long with many a winding turn.” And by road we mean dirt as in “country roads take me home.” Mile two and three go through a farm where “life on a farm is kinda laid back.”

If you were a volunteer course marshal, the morning was brisk but just barely damp from the pleasantly unrequited promise of rain for the weekend. As a runner, missing the water at the first two ditches on the opening hill just meant that you were not muddy until the next mile. Most of the experienced runners were in shorts and by the last mile were hoping for rain to cool them off.

There was “no wind, no rain, or winter storm” to slow the runners this year. Times could have been very fast. With so many races in the area, the field of elite runners was diluted. Still, there were nearly five hundred finishers in the 10K and nearly two hundred more in the preceding 4K. The last two miles of the race are a little faster than most of the course with a long downhill and paved roads until that last quarter back up to the finish. Final quarters take care of themselves.

This year the favorite was Mark Stickley (44) of Winchester, VA. He had run in 2005 against a strong field, finishing fourth, second master in 34:50. This year he lingered back of the lead pack for the first half mile and then eased away from the field. While he had the third slowest winning time in the first ten years of the race, his 35:01 was near the 40-44 record set when Tim Schuler topped him in 34:33 to 34:50 in 2005. Next year he can gun for Chuck Moeser’s 45-49 record 34:44. In photo left, Andres Wright (40) of Frederick, MD used his newly minted masters status to cement a solid 35:25 second place award.

The battle for third was between two teens. Tim Maline (18) of Herndon, VA sprinted up the final hill for an excellent 36:08. Two years younger, Andrew Budiansky of Leesburg, VA was not far behind in 36:50. Awards were to the top three runners and the top two in five year age groups. Christian Falmagne (45) of Bethesda, MD was fifth as the last sub 6:00 pace finisher in 37:11.

Bruce Halpin (50) of Ashburn, VA ran a solid 40:49 for the grandmaster title just beating Michael Fitzgerald of Hagerstown, MD by five seconds. Bob Chase (60) of Pimmit, VA was tops in 46:43 surprising Lou Shapiro (65) of Silver Spring, MD in 47:02. Shapiro gave John Elliot some incentive with his second fastest course time for the 65-69 division. Elliott had set the record in 44:17 in 2005. Richard Williams (71) of Alexandria, VA (54:36) broke George Waxter’s best time to earn the second fastest time. Jerry Lewis, who often Duels with Williams set the record in 2005 with 53:59.

For the women, Jen Oblas of Leesburg, VA had finished second last year on the course that grew well past 10K in distance. This year she looked relaxed running ahead of the entire field. Her time was the slowest winning time so far but she did reset the Leesburg resident record with her 43:40. Anita Freres (41) of Reston, VA was the top master coming in second in 44:11 just out of reach of Oblas. Christine Goodrum of Leesburg (in photo above), VA was next in 45:10 holding off a late rally from Mariana Pargana of Washington, DC in 45:23. The rest of the top ten were very close as well with three places decided by just six seconds.

Tenth place Karen Young of Boyds, MD is getting an early start on the 10K. In 2005 she ran forty of them. Last year she only ran 38 10Ks in her 113 races for the year. Linda Sheimo (50) of Fairfax, VA ran a solid 51:10 for the grandmaster win. That is a ranked times and they do not come easy on this scenic course.

There were many, many young runners in the 4K. In the 10K the youngest runner for the males was Spencer Barrett (9) and for the females Amanda Eller (12) both of Leesburg VA. The record for the boys is still seven by Michael Castor. In 2000 phenom Aurora Scott of Portsmouth, VA, then just nine, was fifth overall in 46:02. Now sixteen she has run 16:37 for the fastest female 5K in the region in 2006.

After the race, runners enjoyed abundant quantities of refreshment inside the recreation Center.
