NETT hits Holliston, and Durden Doubles

More great racing results from NETT this past weekend.

Chrissy Durden has quietly been making big strides in her running (showing up to Tuesday night workouts since the winter, for example). Her hard work is paying off as exemplified at not one, but two races this past weekend. On Saturday Chrissy hit theGail Polizzotti Memorial 5K up in Methuen MA and was 1st in her age group and 18th overall in a time of 22:40. "It was a beautiful, sunny day," she says. "And I haven’t run in sunny weather in a while so that helped get me through the back half of the race, which was all uphill."

Chrissy got a $25 gift certificate to Whirlaway Sports for her troubles.

But one race was not enough for the speedster. On Sunday Chrissy hit the very competitive New Charles River Run 7.5M in Cambridge and was 11th in her age group and 196th overall in time of 58:13. "I felt really good, but think I could have run harder," she said.

And running stride for stride with Chrissy was Karyn Eminem, finishing just a few places in front of CD.

Nice work ladies! Way to reprezent!

Meanwhile, there was another weekend of multisport activtiy for NETTers. While his better half was ripping up the roads this weekend, Martin Bures had what can only be described as a breakthrough performance at the Holliston Lions Triathlon this weekend, finishing 5th overall! Martin's really been ramping up his training efforts lately and it's clearly paying off.

Also putting in an excellent performance at Holliston was Adrienne Cyrulik, who ran a leg of a tri relay. Her team finished first in the relay division, anchored by Adrienne's blistering run leg (the fastest of any relay runner!)

Congrats to all!
