Report of Hank Schiffman of the 60+ & 70+: Queens 10k

Our 60+ men had an acute case of evaporating starters. The registration roll looked stout, but come gun time we had but three 60 runners 60 – 69; all crossed the line. Who would have thunk Dennis O’Donnell, our returned prodigal son of the 5k and marathon, would be our next high card?  Charles Parchment Photo: Hank Schiffman Noel Labat-Comess, 41:56 / 78.98% and Charles Parchment, 42:47 / 77.39% (last year 45:08 / 71.69%), both ran brilliantly. But our “would be” third fast scorer was vaporware . Had Dennis, 49:25 / 67.63%, known he was our third scorer, he surely would…
