JIM HELLER WINS JANUARY 14, 2013 GUESSTIMATE RACE

Jim Heller won the guesstimate race with a two second miss on the January 14, 2013 race. This was his 12th guesstimate win, 4 more than anyone else. Jim has won 11 guesstimate races in the last 10 year including at least one in 7 of the last 10 years. Rounding out the top five in todays race were Soula Thomas 2- 8 second miss, Kie Soohoo 3- 9 second miss, 3- John Araujo 9 second miss and Nelson

Slagle 5- 15 second miss. I guess experience helps in the guesstimate race as the top five finishers have ran a total of 783 lunch hour 5Ks and their average age is 67!

ANDY BORN WINS JAUARY 2013 5K IN A TIME OF 19:17

Andy Born won his first lunch hour 5K in a time of 19:17. Andy became the 36th different runner to win in 329 lunch hour 5Ks. Rounding out the top five were: John Araujo 2- 19:51, Dave Parsel 3- 20:56 Tim Hickok 4- 21:42 and Mary Nickles 5- 21:55.

Mong Noiboonsook and Mary Nichols were the only runners to establish a personal best (PB). Mong lowered his PB by 33 seconds. Mary lowered her personal best by 3 seconds, the 3rd time in her last four races that she lowered her PB.

. Several mile stones were reached by runners. John Araujo ran his 170th race, Dave Fier ran his 20th race, Emmett Rahl ran his 120th race and Nelson Slagle ran his 310th race.

Congrats to Mary Nickles who lowered the 50-59 age group female record to 21:55. This is the 3rd time she has lowered the record in her last four races. Soula Thomas sets a record every month she runs as the oldest runner to run our lunch hour 5K. Today she ran at 88 years and 4+ months. Congrats Mary and Soula. You are inspiration to all of us.

My web site is up and running with a new host for several months now. The 5K results are posted on my web site at SlagsHouseOfStats.com.

The next 5K is scheduled for 11:50 AM Monday, February 11, 2013 at Gate 510 on the northwest corner of the Boeing Seal Beach Facility.
