Strong showing from NETT at the Boston Prep 16-Miler in Derry

NETT had another great showing at the very competitive Boston Prep 16-Miler in Derry, NH this weekend. Conditions were not great, according to reports from the field, with some slush, snow and ice in spots, so not a year for PRs on the course. On the men's side, Paul Miller put in another great race at Derry, finishing 5th overall in 1:37 and tops in the 30-39 age group. Frank White, a perrenial at Derry, cracked the top 20 finishers with a 1:44. Ben Speiss was out there again this year (1:50) and Dima Feinhaus put in a solid sub-2 performance for top 75 placing.

On the ladies' side, Karen Ringheiser finished third master in 2:01, while Tina Wang (accompanied by Frank KJ) was a very solid 2:09. Jennifer Shultis ran as well, but seems confused as to what her time was. I guess without night vision goggles and climbing gear, a race is somewhat confusing to her.

(Frank and Dima talk strategy before the start).

I may have missed someone out there in the results--let me know. Great results by all out there in sub-optimal conditions. Congrats.
