NETT Rips it Up at Walter's Run

NETT runners have been busy racing and eating the past couple weekends, so here's an update.

Last weekend, it was the NETT favorite Walter's Run 5K road race in West Roxbury. As in years past, NETT runners ran away with age group awards. On the women's side, Mary led the charge finishing 3rd overall. Amanda and AC took 1-2 in the 30-39 age group. NETT newbie Mairead won the 40-49 age group with Tina taking third.

On the men's side, Frank and Crazy Dave ran stride for stride and came in together a few clicks over 18 minutes finishing 2nd and 3rd in their age group. Noah Eminem won his age group in 20:15 and NETT pal Matt Moore ran away with the 20-29 age group. Bob was only one spot out of a bronze in the 60-69 age group.

After the race Dave and Doris hosted their usual brunch giving everyone a chance to catch up and enjoy some great company.

As always, Keith Shields and the Parkway Running Club put on a fantastic event. Extremely well organized, friendly and knowledgeable volunteers and a great kids event as well. All of the money raised goes to charity, including the Walter Burgess Scholarship Fund
