Wanderers Looking Good at Caesar Rodney

Wanderers demonstrated some excellent early season form at the Caesar Rodney half marathon on March 11. Chris Verry, Dawn Fantasia, Polly Jansen, Werner Krandick and Dennis Crowne with Petra as support and papperaza wandered down to Wilmington for the race.

Chris was first over the finish line in an excellent time of 1:28:50. He placed 120th in a field of 1187. Polly also looked strong in her preparation for the Boston Marathon finishing in 292nd place in a time of 1:38:45. Werner also showed he is rounding into form with a time of 1:46:17.

It was great to see Dawn back in action as she finished in 2:04:13, with Dennis, who is prepping for the God's Country Marathon in Coudersport later this spring, finishing in a very respect able 2:14:27.

The race also featured old friends Chuck Shields of the Philadelphia Athletic Charities team who finished in 1:26:15, and Steve Metraux of Philly Runners who was timed in 1:30:30.
