Race Reports from the Women: Healthy Kidney 10k

Report from Jacy Kruzel and Veronica Jackson of the Open: Ivette Mejia led the way for the CPTC Open Women’s Team 3rd place finish.  She mentioned the race went out a little faster than she wanted but was determine to compete and not hold back, evidenced by her 11th overall finish in a very competitive field.  She also PR-ed by 37 seconds in the process of landing herself the #7 spot on the CPTC Best List!  Even more impressive, she landed herself into the NYRR’s President’s Circle!!! Way to set up the team for a great day Ivette! Ivette Mejia…

Race Reports From the Men: Healthy Kidney 10k

Report from Greg Cass of the Open: The 2017 NYRR Club Points Series continued on Sunday, April 9 with the UAE Healthy Kidney 10K (or, The-Race-Formerly-Known-As-The-Scotland-Run-10K).  Early spring racing conditions can be a bit of a wildcard, but something lined up perfectly to give racers ideal conditions – sunny, mid-40’s, no wind.  In a field filled with both world class professionals and the best the area’s clubs have to offer, the Open Men showed well, finishing 5th (4th among NYRR clubs) to continue on a solid stretch of racing to start the year. Matt Lawder lead the way with an…

Race Reports for the Men: Washington Heights 5k

Report from David Greenberg of the 40+: On Sunday, in Washington Heights, the 40-49 men had a classic sports day dilemma. We made a huge leap forward compared to previous years. Our team time was far below that of the last few years and several of us had phenomenal races. But we finished third again in the standings. So we have to be happy about the team’s improvements and individual accomplishments, but we don’t have to be happy about our third place finish.  Pre-race, judging by our entry list and comparing projected times to previous winning times, I felt we…

Race Reports for the Women: Washington Heights 5k

Report from Ani Go of the 40+ & 50+: What a start to the race season!  This was the coldest kickoff that I can recall.  Stats say 14 degrees, and last year it was 28 degrees–twice as warm as this year.  Let’s hope we don’t get 7 degrees next year or we’ll have to train in a meat locker to get used to the cold.  With penguins.  And filet mignons.   Despite that, the Masters 40+ and 50+ teams went out and got it done…with a twist!  The 40+ team–led by the incredible Judy Stobbe and speedy newcomer Susan Doyle-Lindrud–are…

Race Reports from the Men: Ted Corbitt’s 15k

Report from David Greenberg of the 40+:  The M40+ took its third consecutive gold at the final race of the 2016 NYRR team points race. Our traditional end of the season kick arrived, and it was fearsome.  But it left us just short of a third consecutive championship.  Unofficial points standings after Corbitt:  Urban Athletics: 155  CPTC: 152  After deleting our two worst races:  Urban: 144  CPTC: 132  The race was a fitting close to our season – it had a little of everything that we have brought to the table all season. Old faces, new legs, great performances and…

Race Reports from the Women: Ted Corbitt’s 15k

Jacy Kruzel, Alysia Dusseau, Alex Bernardi, Lindsay Kos Report from Jacy Kruzel & Veronica Jackson of the Open: The Ted Corbitt 15K reminded us how difficult winter running is.  It also reminded us how tough our women’s team is; as they took home the Open Women title!  The team was led by runner-up,  Kate Pallardy, finishing with a new club record of 53:37! Kate Pallardy Photo: Ben Ko The next two scorers also made their way into the CPTC record books, with Ivette Ramirez, finishing in 55:41, good for #4 all time and Alex Bernardi, finishing in 56:32, good for…

Race Reports from the Men: NYC Marathon

Report from Greg Cass and Phil Falk of the Open: The NYC Marathon is always one of the best days of the year in the city, and 2016 didn’t disappoint.  As the calendar turned to November, we mostly managed to leave the hot weather in the summer and the painfully cold rain and wind in October / Staten Island.  This year’s marathon saw comfortable temperatures and a cool fall breeze – perfect spectating weather but perhaps just a little short of ideal for the runners.  CPTC showed well – persevering on the course and cheering from the sideline.  In the end,…

Race Reports from the Women: NYC Marathon

Report from Veronica Jackson of the Open: Congratulations to everyone who raced in the 2016 New York City Marathon.  Marathon Sunday is a great day to be a New Yorker, and the CPTC Women’s Open Team took on all five boroughs with New York pride this past weekend. In a day that was crisp but windy, our team fought hard through headwinds, crosswinds, and up the dreaded 5th Ave. In hearing from some of our great racers, it’s clear that no matter the outcome, the New York City Marathon is a magical day, made even better by the tremendous CPTC support…

Race Reports from the Women: Staten Island Half

Report from Veronica Jackson & Jacy Kruzel of the open: Staten Island Marathon Recap & Safety Classes! Hi Ladies! Alysia Dusseau Congratulations to everyone that battled the elements at the Staten Island Half Marathon this weekend! Through the wind and the rain, the CPTC Women’s Open squad was small but fierce, led by Alysia Dusseau in 1:24:48. Alysia said that even though the weather was brutal (she even overheard someone say that this is great practice if anyone likes steeplechase), it was cool running under the Verrazano Bridge a month ahead of the marathon.
