UPDATE: NETT Women Win Hyannis Relay

The NETT coyote pack was out in full force at the Hyannis Marathon, Half-Marathon, 10K and relay, putting in some great performances.

At top of the performance list was the NETT women's relay team, which WON THE WOMENS' MARATHON RELAY RACE. Their blazing fast time of 3:20 for the relay would put them in first. The winning team was led off by the capable hands of Karyn Eminem Miller-Medzon who slim shadied her way up to the first exchange point. From there Chrissy Durden took the baton and cruised along to the half-marathon exchange area. Mary Smith took off like a shot from there in a neon green blur before handing off to anchor leg speed demon Deb Robertson who was all business kicking it in for a 3:20 finish (whatever was in those port-o-potties Deb clearly wants to get away from--fast!).

In the 10K race, Paul Young successfully three-peated in winning the Master's competition with a third-place overall finish in 37:33 (for a course that is significantly longer than 10K). That's three years in a row Paul has won the master's competition here, despite missing some training time with a back injury lately. Paul was simply too fast for us to get any pictures of him, even!

In the half-marathon, there were plenty of Mini Ponies to contend with. On the men's side Crazy Dave led the charge with a 1:16 for for fifth place, Dima Feinhaus was not far behind with a 1:23, good for third master honors! And just to make us feel like whimps, Chris Smith showed up with a mere five hours sleep to run his second race in about 15 hours and still managed a 1:28.

In the ladies half-marathon, the always-consistent Karen Ringheiser churned out a 1:36, while Laura Wieland ran a Personal Best 1:47. Laura is definitely someone to keep your eye on as she continues to improve her times steadily!

Also on hand to cheer on the Mini Ponies and get some running in were Martin Bures and Jean Dany Joachim. Special thanks to those guys for the support.

After the race there was an exclusive, invitation-only NETT lunch at Doyle's in Dennis.
