Today in Gloucester at the Lone Gull, at least twenty Striders competed in the USATF/NE 10K Championship. I’ve listed the twenty below. The Lone Gull offered a fair and beautiful course on a day made for running.
Annajean McMahon took a break from her marathon training and returned to the USATF/NE Grand Prix for the first time in a year. The results were magical as Annajean led the NSS Veteran Women’s team to a first place finish over three other Veteran women’s teams, beating the second place team by 4:40 and snagged second place for herself in the Women 60-69 age group. Rounding out this prize-money-winning team were Linda Desjardins and Deb Jackson. Deb had just finished 350 miles of bicycling in Maine over the previous 6 days, but held on gamely to cap the week with a 10K race.
Meanwhile, on the Men’s side, the NSS Male Super Veteran Team of George Geis, Michael Pelletier, and Armand Claveau won the 70+ division, setting them first place in the year-long USATF/NE team competition with only one race, the Manchester City Marathon left in the 2014 series
