Report of Hank Schiffman of the 60+ & 70+: The NB Bronx 10-Mile Run

Glory be on a beautiful day.  Our 60+ men finished 1st, with power to spare.  Our 70+ men took 5th, in a pinch.  It was nip and tuck with 70+. Captain Dave nursing a foot wound, Chip with an injury that cropped up, Bob could not run, leaving me and Alex with George as the wild card to get 3 pairs of legs over the finish line; George came through. [Unbeknownst to us, he only intended to run 2.5 miles; nothing like good weather to go the distance.] We had our 3 scorers! Though we finished last among the 5 scoring…

Report of David Alm of the 40+: The NB Bronx 10-Mile Run

We had a very strong field at the 6th points race of the year, the Bronx 10 Mile. And despite going in with a huge lead over our competition, DWRT and NBR, we still gave it our all. That’s what makes CPTC so formidable, our ability to dig deep no matter the circumstances, and we never rest on our laurels.  Race day was a little warmer than any of us might have liked, starting in the low 70s at 8:00 a.m. and creeping up. This led to some tough later miles along the Grand Concourse, but many of our top…

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…
