Having seen the previous post, CRR Tom Apple, one of two Creek Road Runners on the island of Oahu, sent word from Hawai‘i. He says, “We had the polar vortex here too; it was 61 the other morning— BRRR!” Thanks for the “bad” weather update.
Just before Christmas, Tom ran what he called a “tepid” 21:01 in the 5K Jingle Rock Run in Honolulu, winning the 60-64 age group by more than four minutes and finishing 45th overall out of 3,614 participants. Not bad for an old man.
When Tom left Newark, he was supposed to have come back for two weeks every January to get in shape, much like he did the other way around while he was here. Guess life in the Pacific is too good to leave.
