2015 Mug Mile Results

The Pilgrims held the annual Mug Mile Friday May 01, 2015 at Germantown High School. The event is in honor of Sir Roger Bannister breaking the 4:00 minute barrier on May 6, 1954. Pictured left running the mug mile is Will Skinner who broke the 9 and under MTRC local Mile record that has been held since 2006. Will went out very strong chasing his 11 year old brother Caleb to set the record running a 5:51.40. He ran pretty even splits, 1:27, 1:30, 1:30, and closed hard with a 1:23.

2014 Saint Jude Marathon Weekend

The Pilgrims were out in full force this weekend. In addition to the participants in the 5K, half marathon, marathon, and marathon relay, Pilgrims were all over the course whether they were manning the finish line, serving as official pacers, cheering the runners, or shuttling the relay team. It turned out to be an awesome day.

In the Grizzly 5K we were well represented by the Skinner brothers. Young Will dominated his age group of 9 and under besting the next closest competitor by almost 4 mins. He won with a 23:25. His older brother Caleb also won his age group with an amazing time of 21:31. Not too shabby for an 11 year old!

In the half marathon Adam Sommers set a new PR and finished 8th overall with a 1:20:42. He won his age group by nearly 3 mins! Atlanta Pilgrim, Jeff Haushalter, made his pilgrimage back to the St. Jude half where he has performed so well over the years. He didn’t disappoint this year either. He was 2nd master with a 1:21:59. Zach Brazil (15 y.o.) had an awesome performance and I am sure a huge PR with a 1:22:49 to win his age group. Michael Barnes followed up his superb RRS with a 3rd place age group finish in 1:27:54. Frank Buscher chalked up another grandmaster title with a 1:28:12. Michael Hecht returned to action with a great placing and a time of 1:37:58. Aida Wiese capped her amazing race year with a 1:41:12. Tammie Skinner had an excellent return to action after healing up to finish in 1:52:04. Kim Lombardi also finished well in 1:55:26.

In the marathon Scott Peatross finished in his 2nd best performance ever with a 3:18:13 and a solid Boston qualifier. John Dolan returned from Fayetteville to notch a BQ also crossing the tape in 3:23:52. Michele Mallory and Sarah Harris both ran consistent efforts to place 2nd and 3rd respectively in their age group. Ashley Spriggs returned to form with a solid 3:45:48 after a couple years away from the distance. Houston Wolf performed pacing duties for the 4:25 runners without a hitch.

In the marathon relay competition, the Pilgrims sought to defend their title from 2012. Captain Bruce Keisling recruited LaDell George, Chris Wiese, Joel Lyons, and Tim Verner to help him in the deed. He also set a goal to finish under 3 hours. They accomplished both tasks by winning the event with a 2:56:10 and a very consistent pace by all members.

Of course, an event like this can’t be carried out without the work of volunteers and the strong support of others. Joe Coffelt, Clint Powell, Danny Greer, Wade Lewis, and John Geiger logged many hours in an official capacity by working the course and finish line. Brenda Walton and Padma Lyons had sherpa and shuttle duties for the relay team as well as other Pilgrims. Steve Skinner coached team Skinner while Gary McCraw “coached” team Spriggs like only he could. Clint Daniels, John & Jennie Fields, and Kevin and Kathy Jenkins gave much needed support from all parts of the course. These great performances were celebrated well into the evening at various locations. It was good to see Suzy and Todd Moroney, Wendy Ragle Chester, Curt and Rachel Arthur, and hosts Brad and Christine Cordts. A fantastic day capped by good fellowship! Apologies to any members overlooked in this report.
