Boston Crowd Goes Wild for Green Team

Daniel Button at the 2014 Boston Marathon

Every GLRR runner remarked on the overwhelming support at the 118th running of the Boston Marathon.  The green team sent 102 runners to the line.  100 made to the finish on a day that was much tougher than it looked on TV.  Temperatures soared to 70+ on the hardest parts of the course but it could not dampen the enthusiasm of the crowd or the team in green.

There were seven green teamers under three hours.  Led by Daniel Button, who looked like he had just escaped from Fenway Park (and the Beard of Brothers) ran 2:39:09 for the 26.2 miles (a pace of 6:05).  Daniel was remarkably consistent all day, and it paid off.

Next across the line was another of the ageless long-time members – Mark Reeder.  Mark, now 54, ripped off a 2:42:35 to place 7th in his division.  As Jason said – “Someone needs to drug test Reeder.  He went by like I was standing still”.

Justin Patronick now fully healthy showed he can really bring it.  He led the green team through the first half of the race.  That heat we mentioned took hold in the second half – but he posted a 2:49:29.

Jason Bui out dueled his buddy James Sullivan, with Jason posting 2:50:49 and James at 2:51:32.  But it took Jason until near the finish line to catch James.

GLRR Hall of Famer, Eric Beauchesne, who runs for the enemy, was the sixth GLRR member under three – posting a 2:58:45.

The final roster inside of three hours was Alex (I’ll eat my shirt) Eld – He must have seen the clock as he approached, and gutted out a 2:59:40.  Way to go Alex.

Trish Bourne after a splash of water from Denny at Heartbreak Hill

On the ladies side of the ledger…  It was Jill Trotter (who made it look easy) who crossed first for the green in 3:10:29.  Next was Katie Schroth in 3:16:48 and then Trish Bourne (another ageless wonder) who finished the 26.2 in 3:19:12 (with a splash from Denny).

Deserving of special mention are Maureen Pellegrini, Ann Marie Johnson, Ken Goodin, Nicholas Kanaracus and Fil Faria – all of whom negative split the race.  Well done boys and girls.

The last special mention goes to George Leslie who finished 4th in the 80+ division (who cares how long it took!  4th is awesome).

The full results can be seen here

Boston Tracking

During the Boston Marathon I’ll be updating the progress of the GLRR runners in the link below:

http://www.glrr.net/races/Results.txt

I’ll do my best to provide updates every 15-30 minutes.

In the listing you will see the runners, their Bib, their splits (10K, Half, 30K and Finish) and the pace for those splits.

Enjoy – glenn

2013-HOF

This year is the year of the women!!!  We have four great and well deserving inductees: Patty Foltz, Diane Geehan, Kara Molloy-Haas and Liane Pancoast.  It should be an awesome night and it would be a shame if you missed it.

As usual – the evening includes the year in review slideshow, scholarships to five worthy local graduating seniors, our 2013 club awards and the hall of fame induction.

Plus the raffle at the end of the night – with some really good prizes – so stick around for that. Right before the raffle we ask that everyone gather for our annual club picture.

To help defray some of the cost – we will be charging a small fee at the door. The fee will be $10 for adults and $5 for kids 16 and under.
