It was a busy, successful weekend for the Dashing Whippets!

  • Even if most people treated this as a training run rather than an actual race, our women still managed to place third at the NYRR 2015 TCS New York City Marathon Tune-Up (18M) this past Sunday! Jessica Chichester was first with a 2:12:14 and placed 1st in her AG, followedby Frances Vignola (2:13:57 and 2nd in her AG). Tiffany Golden-Stone was third with a 2:19:17 and placed 7th in her AG, followed by Brittany Haynes (2:20:35) and Leah Robbins (2:20:42). Caitlin Williamson placed 5th in her AG with a 2:24:41.
  • For the men, Justin Anderson placed fifth in his age group with a 1:59:41.
  • Meanwhile, on the other side of the Hudson, Chris Dawes and Francesca DeLucia rocked the Newport Liberty Half Marathon! Chris placed second overall with a 1:18:17 and Francesca ran a PR of 1:26:08.
  • Down in Brooklyn, Samantha Creath was the second woman overall at the NYCRUNS CAR2GO Narrows Half Marathon, running a 1:31:02. Jennifer Hom ran a 1:43:14.
  • Jordan Rose was 4th place in the Morgantown Marathon in 2:53:09. Congratulations!
