She loves racing, particularly when there are no men around (just kidding). CRR Diane Kukich won the 60-64 age group in the Women’s Race for the Pink Ribbon 5K in Wilmington yesterday, finishing 22nd overall out of 448 runners in 24:48. For her troubles, she won a pineapple. Here’s hoping the fruit of her labors tastes as sweet as another age-group victory.
A few age-group second-place finishes were recorded by Creek Road Runners over the past week.
CRR Keith Crispin finished second among the 40-49s in the Nun Run 5K with a 19:22.
In the women’s Pink Ribbon 5K, CRR Theresa Cannon and CRR Ann Jornlin took seconds in the 50-54 and 60-64 age groups, respectively. Cannon’s time was 25:18, and Jornlin ran a 26:41.
In non-running news, the Amish Country Bike Tour saw four Creek Road Runners on bicycles. CRR Becky George and CRR Sue Barton did the 100-mile course. George averaged over 19mph! CRR Mark Deshon and CRR Skip White teamed up again, averaging just under 18mph over the 50-mile route.
