Race Reports from the Women: 2018 Brooklyn Half

Report from Colleen McGurk of the 40+: The weather might have been cold and rainy but the CPTC Master 40+ women were on fire at the Brooklyn Half as we raced hard and finished strong for a first place finish! Colleen McGurk and Johhny Zhang Our first scorer was Colleen McGurk who had this to say: I am probably the only person who ran who was happy about the forecast. More rain means less pollen and as someone who suffers greatly from allergies this time of year, the weather was absolutely perfect:) It was great to work the race with…

Race Reports from the Women: Healthy Kidney 10k

Report from Jacy Kruzel and Veronica Jackson of the Open: Spring has arrived and the Women’s Open team used perfect spring like conditions to rack in a 3rd place finish and lots of individual PRs.

Race Reports from the Men: Healthy Kidney 10k

Report from Phil Falk and Ed Mulder of the Open: CPTC Men lit up the roads last Sunday at the Healthy Kidney 10K, taking second place in the team competition, with an insane 31:27 average time for our top five finishers. I am told the CPTC Men’s team of legend in the early 1990s may have topped this performance, but I can say with some confidence it’s the strongest road 10K showing we’ve had in the 21st century.  Coach Tony notes: “Wow! That was a magical day! I am so proud of the whole crew!” Of course – it was a great day…

In 2017, we featured a piece written by our own Hal Lieberman detailing his approach to and advice for maintaining a successful running career as a masters runner.  This winter, Hal proved himself to be an authority on the subject when he took home gold and silver medals at the USATF Masters Indoor Track & Field Championships.  I recently had the pleasure to catch up with Hal and hear about his championship races, his start in running, some of the more memorable moments from a long and successful career, and more on the roles that running and his career play…
