NETT "Pours" it On at Vermont City Marathon

Despite the rain, wind and cold, a crew of the heartiest Mini Ponies galloped to success at the Vermont City Marathon this weekend.

First off, big congrats to Eminen for earning that elusive Boston qualifier in very poor conditions. She ran a strong and steady 3:58. Tina was just in front of Karyn running a 3:55 while pulling double duty, running the first half of the mixed relay with Marshall. Their mixed relay team, by the way, was 7th in their division (mixed masters) out of 55 teams.

The NETT five-person relay team of Captain Fluff  Smith, Soggy Shoes Cyrulik, Poker Face Mahoney, Little Skittles, and Beetlejuice Schwartz kicked complete arse by throwing down a 2:51 good for sixth place out of more than 700 teams. As a mixed team, no less. That's a 6:32 average pace.

It was a very successful day all around despite some very difficult conditions. It's a big testament to the strength and teamwork that makes NETT what it is.
