Report from Jacy Kruzel of the Open: The Staten Island Half

The CPTC Open Women came away with a runner up finish on Sunday at the Staten Island Half Marathon. Fall has finally arrived and the team took advantage of the perfect racing temperatures to run many solid races, including some PRs! It previewed some of our top fall marathoners stellar fitness as they approach the last weeks of their training. Alex Bernard led the team with a 7th overall finish in 1:20:03.  Alex, along with 8th overall finisher, Veronica Jackson, ran side by side the whole race, chatting and making the fast times look easy. Both ran the race as…

Report from Sylvie Kimche of the 60+ & 70+: Bronx 10 miler & Staten Island

Bronx 10 miler – Sunday Sept 30 It seems like the start of the Bronx 10 miler was a bit chaotic this year again… not sure why NYRR can’t get their act together for this race. Once the race got going though it did not really matter and did not prevent our ” golden” W70+ team – Deborah Barchat leading the team in her 1st race in her new age group, Judith Tripp and the indefatigable Lynn Blackstone – from scoring 1st place (as we always do when we manage to have 3 runners….) To that effect, a big thank you…

Report from Hank Schiffman of the 60+: Bronx 10 miler & Staten Island Half

The Bronx 10 miler It was Good Day Sunshine for our 60+ and 70+ men at the Bronx 10 miler. If you were well-conditioned, recovered and injury-free or on the mend, more than likely it was a great day in The Bronx. Results tended to bear this out. Cooler temperatures than prior team pointers, low humidity and mild wind in brilliant sunshine will bring the best out in those healthy and prepared. With no fluid replacement in either case, I lost 5 lbs in an easy 10 mile training run a few weeks ago while only 3 lbs in the…

Central Park Track Club M50+ Wins National Cross Country Championship

The core of distance running is going after it, again and again, hoping that in the end the work pays off with accomplishment and improvement. The current crop of CPTC 50+ harriers has been going after a national title for many years, hoping one year they could get on top. One year they were third,  last year they broke through to second, and in 2018 they broke the tape in first, national champs. The win did not come easily, since getting a five-member team to an away race is never easy. Families were asked to be understanding, employers had to…

Race Report from Laurence Go of the 40+: Percy Sutton 5k & 5th Avenue Mile

Percy Sutton 5K: On a picture perfect summer day at Percy Sutton the masters men captured 3rd place with a skeleton crew.  Jeremy Shingleton was our first scorer with aid offered by Grand Masters Brad Kelley and Mark Lindrud. Our first scorer Jeremy Singleton (16:56, 2nd in age (40-44), 80.96%) had this to say about his race: It’s been very gradual progress for me.  Each year, I put in a little more miles and manage to shave off a few seconds from the same races I’ve run in the past.  Saturday was my best time for this course and a…

CPTC Member Jaclyn Gilbert’s Novel About Running Celebrated

CPTCer Jaclyn Gilbert’s Late Air, is almost here. Official publishing date is November 13, 2018, but readers, including many teammates,  came together in New York City to celebrate the novel. “Late Air is a story of the world of elite female athletic performance like no other novel I can think of. In her debut, Gilbert is alternately a miner, a sculptor, a guiding ghost, but always a virtuoso—showing us the athlete’s body as a perfectible object, a vessel for obsessions, a target, and a site for the recuperation of the athlete’s humanity.” —Alexander Chee, author of Edinburgh, The Queen of the Night, and How to…

Race Report from Jacy Arbeit & Veronica Jackson of the Open Women: Percy Sutton 5k & 5th Avenue Mile

Percy Sutton 5K Race Report The Percy Sutton 5K changed its course so the runners saw a hilly new route that coupled for with humid conditions, made for a tough race. The Open came away with a second place team finish and some top 10 times, despite all of this.     Steph Herrick was our first runner with a time of 18:28.  She also happened to be 7th overall and nagged a 2nd place in her age group award as well.   Our next two runners sandwiched the podium in the 35-39 age group with Alysia Dusseau taking 1st in…
