WEEKEND EVENTS FOR DECEMBER 27-28

And then there was one.  Weekend, that is.  The last weekend of the year has only three races (that I can find) in the entire state. 

We usually have a small contingent of Lake-area runners at the Run for the Ranch in Springfield, but I suspect it's going to be even smaller than normal, as some of the regulars skip it for races coming up in January.

The Operation Jack race near Kansas City offers half marathon and 5K distance options.  Last year, a full marathon option was offered, but it attracted just nine participants.

Springfield:

Run for the Ranch (marathon, marathon relay, half marathon and 6-hour run), Saturday

Kansas City area:

Operation Jack Run/Walk in the Snow (half marathon & 5K), Saturday

St. Louis (Forest Park): 

St. Louis Track Club Frostbite Series (2 miles & 10 miles), Saturday

As always, check the Lake Area Runners' Facebook page to see what they may be doing this weekend.

LAKE AREA RUNNERS REINDEER RUN  (updated December 14th)


Fifty-four runners came out to Linn Creek on Saturday for the Lake Area Runners Reindeer Run. The race was a hastily-arranged opportunity for Todd Raney to reach a milestone of 400 miles raced for 2014.  It also served as a fund-raiser for the Citizens Against Domestic Violence's (CADV) Christmas Program, in which the Lake area community is asked to "adopt" families in need this Christmas season.  The unseasonably mild and dry weather, with calm winds and temperatures in the mid to upper 40s, helped to make the event possible.


The starting line.  Twenty-two runners did the 10K, and 32 did the 5K.   You'd never guess from the photo that it was taken in the middle of December.  (Click on photo for a larger image.)

Going into the race, Todd had raced a total of 393.8 miles in 2014--exactly a 10K shy of 400.  This special race allowed him to hit that 400-mile mark (without having to travel to an out-of-town race), and to add to his record of the most miles raced in a year's time by a Lake-area runner.  (Last week, Todd surpassed his record of 367.8 miles set in 2013 by finishing the Tucson Marathon.)

The event qualified as an official race for the mileage totals, but the "racing" was pretty lackluster.  When race leader Nigher Alfaro took 25:30 to complete the first half of the 10K, you knew something was odd.  (Apparently, the decision not to record finish times contributed to a lot of slacking on the course.) Still, Todd finished, and now holds a record total that is probably only his to beat for years to come. 

After nearly a decade of doing mostly 5Ks, Todd completed his first marathon at Rock 'n' Roll Las Vegas two years ago.  (That race didn't go well, and took Todd just over five hours to finish--his slowest marathon to date.)  In 2014, Todd ran eleven marathons, one ultramarathon, and one marathon-relay.  He's now checked off 15 states in his quest to finish a marathon in all 50 states.  Congratulations, Todd!

As a result of this event, just over $2,000 (including voluntary donations by two of our runners) will be donated to CADV to adopt families in the Christmas Program.  We hope the donation will alleviate some of the pain that those troubled families are feeling, and let them know that others care about them.

A sincere thanks goes to all who came out.  Due to the short notice for the race, some weren't able to join us due to other commitments.  Illness kept still others away.

A special thanks goes to those from distant cities who came out to join us, especially Randy and Melissa Hart from the St. Louis suburb of Ballwin.  Randy and Melissa are fairly new runners, and struggled a bit on the course.  (I hope they don't show think all of our other local 5K courses are this flat.  Thank goodness we didn't hold this at Tan-Tar-A.)


Melissa and Randy Hart.
If you're from St. Louis, the answer to the the uniquely St. Louis question of "Where did you go to high school?" is: Randy went to DeSmet; Melissa to Lindbergh.

We had a number of runners from areas north of the Lake join us for the first time in Linn Creek.  Ron Bentch and Jason Zolecki came from Versailles, April and Corey Boicourt came from Barnett, and Heather Doyle came from Tipton.  April, Corey and Heather made the drive after running in the FFA Candy Cane 5K in Russellville earlier in the morning.

KIAWAH ISLAND HALF MARATHON  (posted December 13th)


The start of the Kiawah Island Marathon & Half Marathon.
   Circled in red is Ashley Pryor, who's running just behind the pacer for the 3:35 marathon group
.   (Click on photo for a larger image.)

Two of our Lake-area runners, Ashley Pryor and Lacy Davis, started off 2014 by running the Walt Disney World Marathon (which was also Lacy's first marathon) in Orlando in January, and ended the year by running the Kiawah Island Half Marathon in Kiawah Island, South Carolina, on Saturday (December 13th).  The temperature was a chilly 37 degrees at the 8:00 a.m. race start, but warmed to 53 by 10:00 a.m. under beautiful, clear skies.

Ashley, who suffered an Achilles tendon injury at the Des Moines Marathon in October, has been wearing a walking boot since undergoing an MRI about six weeks ago.  You might think that Ashley would take it easy after being released to run, but apparently she couldn't contain herself.   She ran her fastest half marathon of the year (of a total of three) and, as far as we can tell, a new personal record, by a margin of just two seconds.  Ashley finished in 1:44:47, placing 25th (of 268) in the female 30-34 age group.  (Her previous half marathon best appears to be the 1:44:49 at the 2013 Route 66 Half Marathon.)

Lacy Davis finished in 2:13:04, placing 137th in the same age group.  There was no PR for Lacy.   She was a few minutes behind her finish time at the Rock 'n' Roll St. Louis Half Marathon in October.

Full results can be found here.
