W&M at Boston

I should add that Sue Haynie '89 and John Kellogg '84 ran 2:51 and 3:15 at Boston today.   Amazing to think how well they are still running.  Both John (steeple) and Sue (5K) are still on the top ten all-time lists.  The photo above was just taken a few hours ago. 

W&M Interview of Meb Keflezighi

My senior roommate, Scott Douglas '86, has carved a great career in writing as a senior editor for Running Times and Runner's World).  Above is one example of his great work as today he had a great one on one interview with Boston Marathon champ Meb Keflezighi.

Stites Run 32:41

I have been on vacation so am a bit behind, but that does not mean there is not information to report as Emily Stites and Elaina Balouris are at it again.  This time Stites knocked off 90 and all the way down to 32:41 which is the 3rd fastest NCAA time this year.  Balouris also ran extremely well with a PR in 33:31 which ranks her 14th in the NCAA.  She is also ranked 9th in the NCAA in the 5K.   More

Friend-Uhl Still Amazes

Back in 1992 Sonja Friend (now Friend-Uhl) set the 800 meter school record in 2:09.89.  What is more remarkable is that at age 43 she just ran 2:11.58 at the Mt SAC Relays.  If you have Flotrack Pro, you can see the race here.

Balouris Story in the Flat Hat

Here is a nice piece on senior Elaina Balouris who is in her senior season at W&M with five All-American titles, she is hoping for a 6th in the 5 or 10K (which is running in two weeks).  

Past Coaches at Colonials

Tim O'Dowd promises me more pictures soon, but in the meantime here is a picture of Harry Groves and Baxter Berryhill at our recent Colonial Relays' reunion taken by Brian Mount.

Landry Sizzles in First National Title

While the rest of his fellow brethren were enjoying a great reunion (pictures coming) in Williamsburg, Christo Landry was flying to his first national championship at the Cherry Blossom 10 miler in 46:41. The run made his the 6th fastest US performer of all time!  The race placed him sixth overall and proves his decision to stay with former W&M coach Alex Gibby is paying off.
