B.A.A. Women Ramble To the Top of the Podium.

B.A.A. Women Ramble To the Top of the Podium.
The USATF New England Grand Prix resumed at the James Joyce Ramble 10k on Sunday, May 1, 2011 and the women’s team picked-up where they left off six weeks ago – in the top spot. After getting the 2011 series off to a winning start at the New Bedford Half Marathon, the team of Laura Brustolon, Kristin Murphy, Carly Shea, Liz Hankinson, and Pamela Manley combined for a six-minute victory at the USATF New England 10k Championship. Brustolon took the runner-up spot and Murphy and Shea followed in third and fourth respectively to put the B.A.A. on solid ground. Liz Hankinson and Pamela Manley completed the scoring for the B.A.A. Mimi Fallon, who was the club’s sixth woman, had a solid race placing a close second in the Masters’ division.

The Men’s Open Team also took a spot on the podium with their third place finish. With some of 2010s top USATF New England Grand Prix scorers competing at the Penn Relays and the Payton Jordan Invitational (see below), the men had their work cut out for them from the start. The 2010 USATF New England Grand Prix Champion Matt Ely, was the top B.A.A. finisher in second place. He was joined in the top ten by Patrick Moulton, who was the 2010 New England Marathon Champion, Matt Carter, and Ben Schmeckpeper. Wayne Levy also scored for the B.A.A. in a tight team finish: a mere 47 seconds was the difference between first and third.

The Medical Center 6k, was right on the heels of the 10k, taking place on Sunday, May 8th in Nashua, NH. Matt Ely took third overall and Harry Carter was the winner in the 70-79 age category.

The next event in the USATF New England Grand Prix is the Rhody 5k on Sunday, June 5th at the Twin Rivers Casino in Lincoln, RI. The men’s race kicks-off at 9:30 AM and the women’s race follows at 10:00 AM.

’Bloomsday’ for the B.A.A.

Just as James Joyce’s Ulysses chronicled the many events of a single day (nicknamed Bloomsday by Joyce fans), May 1 proved to be a ‘Bloomsday’ of sorts for the Boston Athletic Association and it capped-off a weekend of solid performances by individual running club members. While runners were getting ready to start the James Joyce Ramble, Emily Kroshus and Lisa Kaplan were finishing 1-2 in the Cox Sports Marathon in Providence, RI. Both women went sub-three hours with Kroshus winning in 2:53:24 and Kaplan running a personal best 2:55:31 for second overall and first in the master’s division. Both women were among the top twenty finishers, male or female.

Meanwhile, out on the left coast, Tim Ritchie, Lucas Meyer, and Jeannette Faber were awaiting their respective 10k races on the track at Stanford University. The three participated in the Payton Jordan Invitational on Sunday evening with Ritchie posting the fastest time of the day for any B.A.A. Running Club member with his 28:37:20. Meyer also had a strong race on the oval, finishing in 29:01:14. Faber once again lowered her personal best posting an impressive 33:22:84.

Earlier in the weekend, Brian Harvey traveled to Philadelphia to compete in the Olympic Development 10k at the Penn Relays. The 2010 New England Runner Runner of the Year won the event in 29:39:78 .
