TOMOKA MARATHON (posted March 29th)

Chalk up state number 19 in Todd Raney's multi-year quest to run a marathon in every state. On Sunday, Todd scratched "Florida" off his list as he and Pete Russo ran the Tomoka Marathon in Ormond Beach, Florida. The weather was unusually mild for the east coast of central Florida, with temperatures ranging from the mid 40s to low 60s during the race. That helped Todd run his fastest marathon of the year, finishing in 4:01:14, and placing ninth (of 30) in the 45-49 age group.

Pete Russo finished with a personal marathon best of 4:29:19, while placing 14th in the 45-49 age group.

Full results can be found here.

BRIDGE AND DAM HALF MARATHON & 10K (updated March 28th)

Judging from all the smiles on the course, snow flurries didn't dampen the spirits of those participating in the inaugural Bridge and Dam Half Marathon & 10K (Facebook page) on Saturday (March 28th) A total of 197 runners competed in the half marathon, and another 75 in the 10K, easily making these races the largest of these distances ever held in the Lake area.  Even more impressive is that a stunning 70% of the runners came from outside the Lake area, and they represented a total of ten states. It's safe to say that we've never had so many out-of-town and/or elite runners at a Lake-area race.

The overall half marathon male and female winners were the phenomenal, 55 year-old Gerald Holtmeyer of Bonnots Mill, Missouri, in 1:22:22, and Eldon's Lizzy Handschy, in 1:23:10.   Lizzy's finish is the fastest half marathon ever recorded by a Lake-area woman, and is believed to be faster than that recorded by any Lake-area male runner as well.   She crossed the finish line just five seconds ahead of the second-place female, Lindsey McDonald.

   
The top four half marathon finishers, pictured left to right: Gerald Holtmeyer (overall winner), Greg Linhart (1:24:49; second place male), former Park University cross country runner Lindsey McDonald (1:23:15; second place female), and former Washington University cross country runner Lizzy Handschy (overall female winner).

The 10K was won by Todd Pasley of Linn Creek (50:07) and Cristan Rayl of Kansas City (54:03).

Full results can be found here.

A special congratulations goes to those listed below who completed their very first half marathon or 10K at this race.  This course was nothing but hills, and finishing it makes your achievement that much more special. (If your name should be added to the list below, please let me know.)
