TNAR Episode II - A Shotty Recap

Catha Mullen / NYACWashington Heights, NYC - Last night at the Armory on 168th st, the 2nd Edition of NYRR's Thursday Night At The Races took place.  Schedule of events were the following: 3k, 800 meters, 1500 meters, with women racing first in each event, then men second.  While we were too busy warming up and then waiting and waiting and waiting, and waiting, for the endless amount of men's 3k's to be run, we had no time to pay attention to the winners of the 3k, however, word was that the men's winning time was around 8:35ish.  Pretty swift.  However we did catch wind that Catha Mullen, of NYAC, won the women's 800 in a time of 2:15.  After qualifying for the USA Marathon Olympics Trials this past November in New York, with a time of 2:43, looks like she's working on getting some of her speed back.  Checking out the NYAC's website, she has a PB of 2:08 in the 800, so sounds like a smart thing for her to be doing.  2:08 is no joke, and being only 24, she has room to lower that time.  Another standout in the women's 800 meters, this time in the 2nd heat, was Dana Walsh, a senior at Sacred Heart and with a PB in the 800 of 2:10, raced a nice time 2:21, as she's getting back into shape and preparing for anchoring the Millrose Games4x400 High School relay.  On the men's side of the 800, the winning time was 1:55, in a race that was negative split, but we're not sure of the name of the winner.  As for the 1500, we were so dejected with our own race, we left early to go home and pout.  Next TNAR can be found on our 'Upcoming Events' list, or be visiting www.nyrr.org.  I believe it should be Feb. 2nd. Come on out for it.
