Julie won the overall Women’s division at the Strongsville Spring Classic 10 miler this morning. She was in the top 20 overall as well. A very consistent 7:30 pace held off all women and Charles Howe as well. Julie’s long winter recovery from surgery has yielded wonderful (and surprising!) results.
The RATL Master’s race was exciting. TLE’s Joe Palotto made a solo effort for several laps, then Chris R. and Rudy tried to go; no gap to speak of; then Jim Gilmore darted away, covered shortly by Spin’s Tom Humphrey. Despite some efforts by Stark Velo racers and Tom Freuh (Carbon) which nearly reeled in the breakaway–the two stayed away with Jim taking second. Joe had run the field at a steady pace quelling most efforts to chase the lead duo.
Excellent teamwork by TLE members on a very cold rainy morning. Congrats to Tom and Jim for a strong effort.
John finished with the field in a wet and cold 1/2/3 race.
Volunteers for tomorrow’s Covered Bridge race meet at 8:00 at registration for instructions.
