2020 Super Sunday 5 Miler

2020 Super Sunday 5 Miler

02/02/2020

Cambridge, MA

Weather: 39 degrees, overcast and breezy

Congratulations to all those who ran Super Sunday this past weekend! Our first race of the year was a huge success and hopefully it got you excited for a fun year of racing in 2020. Be on the lookout for an announcement soon from the Race Committee announcing the full club race schedule.

But first, a recap of Super Sunday. The race is generally CRC’s biggest event of the entire year by participation, and 2020 may have been our biggest group yet. Ninety-five strong came out to run or volunteer for the club, a showing that earned us our very own pre- and post-race bus. Special shout-out to our volunteers: Chloe Andersen, Adam Meltzer, Jason Stewart, Sean Cooke, Kate Humphrey, Mike Hanley, Mrudula Vempuluru, and Brian Edgar. Eliza Kano-Bower helped Race Director (and friend of CRC) Alain Ferry put on the race, and Jason Varney volunteered at a food stand after racing. As many in the club know, Alain has a tight connection with CRC and it means a lot to him that we support his RACE Cancer foundation through our participation and volunteering. Thanks to everyone!

Super Sunday was also the first race of the 2020 USATF New England Grand Prix schedule and CRC got a good feel for the New England-area competition. Our women’s open team came in 9th place out of 21, men’s team 10th out of 17, men’s masters 8th out of 12, and men’s masters 50+ 8th out of 12. Next up is New Bedford on March 15; more details to come!

The field was deep and extremely competitive, which led to some fast racing and PRs. Mark Tebbe ran a PR of almost two minutes; the time earned him 14th in AG (most years he would have won the age group). Masaya Ando gave a shout-out to Zach Chapasko (nearly a minute off at 29:07) and Shoko Okabe for their PRs, and Shoko noted that Masaya ran a PR at the end of two straight 90-mile weeks. She also celebrated Laura Santoski’s sub-30 and Kristen Glennie for improving her time by almost a minute (partly because she wasn’t hurt from jumping off a door frame this year). And to complete the group acknowledgement party, Laura noted, “Shoko PRed! I think she said on Strava that it was both a 5K and 5mi PR for her.”

CRC newcomer Joe Sweeney ran his fastest 5 miler ever (29:31), but he also split his 5K PR (17:59). Fellow newcomer Andrew Avitabile was happy to report that after just one month of track workouts with CRC, he managed to shave a full minute off of his 5K. David Fisher had a cool achievement by running his fastest pace of any race, and Sriram Krishnan ran a PR by 1:15 (and felt he could have pushed even harder at the end). Sarah Soltau ran a PR of just over one minute, but perhaps more impressively, convinced husband Kun Song to run Super Sunday for the first time in five years. There were a couple of other long-awaited returns to racing from Jen Caban, Katie Turck, and Austin Mancenido. Austin spent most of 2019 injured and still managed to almost match his time last year. Glad to have you all back on board!

Sarah Gabriel praised Steph Habura for stepping on the gas in the second half, and she gave a well-deserved compliment for “OG CRC masters” Pat and Marcia Gookin, Geoff Philbrick, Ian Rea, Cris Popa, Yoshino Kitajima, and Pat Bazinet. Lastly, it was “Sweet Pea” Puz’s first race and she was so excited that she fell asleep in the last half mile. Quite the beginning of what’s sure to be a long CRC career!
