Last week, CRR Bruce Weber ran in three competitions, all quite different from one another.
On Sunday, Oct. 17, representing the Greater Philadelphia Track Club (GPTC), Weber ran the National Masters 5K Cross Country race in Boston’s Franklin Park. He finished second among his GPTC team and 11th overall nationally among the 60-and-overs with a 20:37. His GPTC team finished third in the 60+ age division.
That Wednesday, Oct. 20, Weber ran a 19:45 and won his age group in the UD Blue Hens Homecoming 5K (see previous article for detail).
Weber ended his busy week on Saturday, Oct. 23, by running in the Ghosts of Granogue 5-mile trail run—a tough local cross-country course—finishing third overall and taking first in his 60-69 age group in 39:49.
Weber’s comment on this three-race effort was, “Not to be repeated any time soon.”
Whew! Time now to recover.
