Welcome to this week’s edition of our weekly news and events roundup of all things Whippet-related.
- Make sure to sign up for the Queens 10k, which is the next points race that’s currently open. It will probably start nearing capacity soon. Here’s info:http://www.nyrr.org/races-and-
- We are planning a joint track meet with NBR since both of the tracks we use are under construction. We are tentatively thinking June 9th at the Red Hook track. Stay tuned for details!
- Almost all of the open NYRR April races are nearing capacity, so sign up for them soon if you want to run them.
- If you’re new to the team, two good runs to check out are our easy runs on Mondays (https://www.meetup.com/
dashing-whippets/events/ 248335016/) and Wednesdays (https://www.meetup.com/ dashing-whippets/events/ 248817918/).

- Our women placed third at the 2018 United Airlines NYC Half. After only one week, Jessica Chichester (8th AG) set another women team record of 1:18:15! She was followed by: Elizabeth Laseter (1:22:19); Kathleen Servidea (1:23:57-5th AG); Alaina Miller (1:24:20) and Laura Gann (1:25:37-9th AG). Barbara Mann (1:29:15) and Kim Martineau (1:29:57) placed 7th and 5th in their AG.
- On the men side, David Roeske (1:16:31) and Chris Dawes (1:22:32) both placed 9th in their AG. Bobby Liu (1:22:36) placed 10th in his AG. Placing top five for the guys were Karlo Mendoza, Thomas Garvey, Zach Custer, David R., and David Goldfarb.
- Also, some other great PRs (I think) were run by Garrett Burger, Jessica Chichester, Stephen Bione and Stephen Gnoza, Eric Buscarino, Kathleen Servidea, Matthew Feick, Laura Gann, Meghan Bongartz, Eliza Ragsdale, Heather Weneck, Jessie Zaccaro, June Luo, and Riri Nagao.
- At the Spring Fling 10K, Kristen Beren ran her longest post-partum run (and second race!), finishing in 1:02:46.
- And, I misreported Dorota’s time last week. She actually ran a 1:36:59, which was a PR!
Race for Edie 5k
The Dashing Whippets are pleased to be a Sponsor of the Race for Edie 5K, to be held May 20, 2018 in Prospect Park. A gifted runner and cyclist, Edie Perkins ran for the Dashing Whippets before moving to California in 2016. In April 2017, while cycling near L.A, Edie was struck by an SUV turning into her path. She sustained extensive injuries, and is paralyzed from the chest down. Edie’s friends have organized this 5K to assist with the costs of her care. To register:https://runsignup.com/Race/NY/
