New Year’s Day has come and gone, and some even felt the necessity to fit in an initial race. In the local Hangover Helper 5K, a couple age-group awards were won by Creek Road Runners.
CRR Andrew Weber came in second in the 30-39 age group with a 19:11, finishing 6th overall out of 112 participants. CRR Christine Schultz also came in second in her age group (40-49) with a 26:12 and finished 21st overall.
Christine’s husband, CRR Dave Schultz, took a third in the 50-59s in 24:08 and was 12th overall. For the Schultzes, this was a good showing, a day after they had run in the “Wring Out the Old, Ring in the New.” Their daughter, Lawson, won the 20-and-unders at age 14 with a 26:57. Of course, not having run the previous day, she was fresh.
