Report of Hank Schiffman of the 60+ & 70+: Washington Heights 5k

60+ men

1st place in the first team point race, besting Witold’s by one minute, one second:

Charles Parchment 21:19, 74.92%, 3rd AG, 2018- 21:40, his fastest this year’s race

David Blumel 21:30, 75.56%, 4th AG, his 1st Wash Heights 5k

Hank Schiffman 21:55, 78.84%, 3rd AG, 2018- 21:46, his fastest 2010-19:55

Alan Ruben 22:22, 72.03%, 11th AG, 2018- 20:23, his fastest 2015-18:15

Dennis O’Donnell 24:18, 66.61%, 21st AG, his fastest 2014-21:25

Kevin McGuire 24:30, 69.2%, 10th AG, 2018- 23:35, his fastest 2010-22:27

 

I have not heard a story of any of our runners where they felt they were hitting on all cylinders for this race; themes and variations on injury, illness and training issues. If so, we were the one eyed king of the land of the blind. Thus, even with our individuals underachieving, collectively we rose like cream in milk. Charles is continuing to improve.
