Race Reports from the Men: Brooklyn Half Marathon

From Greg Cass of the Open: In a rare “road game,” CPTC ventured to Brooklyn and Prospect Park to prove that their road skills extended beyond Manhattan and the well-known turns of Central Park.  The Orange continued their impressive start to the 2014 Club Points series, putting up a number of fast times along the way.  With a beautiful day for racing (only hours after torrential downpours and localized flooding…), the CPTC Open Men went to work and walked away with a number of incredible PRs. – Ben Pedersen took down his PR by nearly 5 minutes to finish at 1:18:55, the…

Race Reports from the Men: Scotland 10K

From Phil Falk of the Open: It was a fine day for a race on Saturday, the Scotland 10K, and the CPTC men put up solid results to show it! We are leaving behind us winter weather miseries, so really the only complaint you could lodge was “wow, that sun in my eyes was sure bright!” I stayed on the sidelines this race (due to a quasi running-related injury), which gave me the unusual chance to watch a team race from the sidelines. It turns out this is much easier than running the race! But it also allowed me to…
