The RRS ended with some pretty impressive results. Kelley Hikade set a 4 minute PR in the half marathon with a 1:36:12. That got her first place Master in today’s race and first place Master for the entire series! Way to go Kelley. Sarah Harris won the Grandmaster race today with a 1:43:46 and ended up 2nd for the Masters right behind Kelley for the entire series. Fantastic Sarah! Jan Jensen also had an amazing series that she capped with a PR at the Half Marathon today in 1:47:32. That was good for 2nd and also wrapped up 2nd GM for the series. Cathy Reid won her AG in 1:58:46 today which gave her the 2nd position in her AG for the entire series. Although Aubrey Zimmerling didn’t race today she was able to end the series as the 2nd place woman Overall; a great feat considering the half marathon she ran was only the 2nd half marathon she has ever run! Congrats to all you speedy ladies. The only male finisher from the PTC for the series was Felio Perez. Felio had a great series and was able to get 3rd in his AG and was 22nd among 740 finishers for the whole series. Kevin Jenkins wasn’t able to get a race in each distance due to being out of town for the 5K. Despite that he ran some very good times and finished in the top 3 in the GM category for each race he entered.

Also a big congratulations to all our club members who were involved with cross country this season. There are quite a few. We have several coaches and many proud parents. Clint Daniels took over the head coaching duties at Houston High this year. Whitten Ortega was his assistant. Clint's daughter ran for Central Arkansas. Mark Newman coached St. George's teams as well as having his daughter Allison, compete as an 8th grader. Kelley Hikade's daughter, Chloe, ran for White Station HS. Tim Verner's son Nick ran at CBHS. Dave Topham's daughter Abbey ran at Central Arkansas while his son ran at Germantown HS. Steve and Tammie's sons Caleb and Will ran for Collierville Middle School. I believe Michael Barnes and Michael Hecht's kids also competed. Congrats to all of you bringing the next generation of Pilgrims to the running scene. Please let the group know if I left anyone out. Again CONGRATS to all! Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving. Good luck to all running the Turkey Trot 4 miler or the Hungry Turkey 5K.
