Weekend Recap: Rust Busters Galore, Philly 1/2, CVS 5k
- The Iona 'Meet of Champions' took place at VCP on Saturday. Manhattan AC's Junior Taylor used it as a rust buster. Here are the results http://athletics.findlay.edu/sports/mxc/2011-12/files/11-09-17-MOC-Men.htm
- New York Road Runners' Fitness 4-miler took place in Central Park at the same time with wins going to a pair of WSX athletes. I used it as a rust buster along with it being my first offical Manhattan AC race. Results can be round here www.nyrr.org
- The RocknRoll Philly 1/2 marathon took place on Sunday which produced lots of fast times and had some wondering if the race course was short (letsrun message board thread). Kim Smith (New Zealand) and Matthew Kisorio (Kenya) set the record for fastest US soil half marathon ever. Results here.
- USA 5k road champs took place in Providence, RI again. This race saw the return of CPC fave Anthony 'Fam' Famiglietti @recklessrunning, who busted his own rust with a 14:03 finishing time. See runnerspace for more news, videos, and results.
