As many of you know HBO (Heather Bailey Ostrander) recently kicked ovarian cancer’s ass. To help celebrate and to support women currently fighting the battle many on Roadkill Racing turned out for the 7th annual Ovarian Cancer 5k at MCC.
The women were led by Lisa Perks who finished 2nd overall and was followed closely by Ashlie Roberts 3rd overall. Lynn Gottfried finished 3rd in her age-group and Jamie Phillips ran a 5k PR of 24:39. HBO was taking it easy on her family and the 3 of them finished the race together.
On the men’s side it was a clean sweep 4 deep, led by Kenny Goodfellow who managed a 16:17 despite being in the middle of 247 mile week. He was followed closely by Matthew George the Dread Pirate Roberts who ran a certified road PR of 16:20.
Dave Rappleyea and Derrick Jones finished up the sweep in 17:01 and 17:06 respectively. This was Dave’s first race back since suffering a foot injury in the spring and Derrick is reminding himself why he prefers longer races. Still not too shabby for a 43 year old, I expect he’ll take 30 seconds off that time for the Masters National Championships in October.
Next up… cross country, where time doesn’t matter and the distances are made up.
