Cross Country to Compete
The Wissahickon Wanderers traveled coast to coast in January
to display their running skills. Rock Steady teamed up with
Chris Moores brother, John, to excel in the San Francisco
Half-Marathon on January 26. Snake Bite, who has been recovering
from back problems, gamely competed in the 5k.
Moore, who lives in San Francisco, finished 468 in an excellent
time of 1:38:35. Rock followed afterwards in 1:55:16 and finished
in 1456th place. Snake, who had not been training for more
than a month because of the back problems, finished in 279th
in the 5k race in a time of 28:16.
The half marathon course was a beauty. The initial stages
of the race traversed Golden Gate Park. The course then followed
the Pacific coastline for about five miles before finishing
again in Golden Gate Park. With the beautiful course, enthusiastic
atmosphere and perfect temperatures, the San Francisco Half-marathon
was added to the list of Must-Runs for Wanderers.
Earlier in the month, Scott Quitel ran in the Frostbite 10-miler
in New Yorks Central Park. The race lived up to its
advance billing with temrperatures in the single digits. Scott
was not deterred by the cold and finished in 661st place in
a time of 1:28:37.
