OK, it looks like at least one Creek Road Runner has been itching to get out and compete in real organized races with physical participants.

Despite some nasty conditions, CRR Doug Repetti got out this month and won his age group in two 5Ks.

Repetti competed on Feb. 7 in the Touchdown 5K in Glasgow, Del., even though it was snowing and the flat course was snow-covered and slushy. He won the 70-79 age group in 29:45 (without falling once on the slippery surface) and finished 31st overall.

Less than a week later, on Feb. 13, he drove to Delaware Indian River Park near Bethany Beach to run the Surfin’ Snowman 5K, which included out-and-back lengths of the Indian River Inlet Bridge. Even though it was raining and very windy, Repetti finished 28th overall in 26:43, taking the very senior 70-and-older age group.

Well done, Doug. Hope you have better weather for your next 5K.
