JIM HELLER WINS RECORD 11TH GUESSTIMATE RACE

     Jim Heller correctly predicted his finishing time and won the guesstimate race for a record 11th time, 2nd time this year, 4th time in about the last ten races, and 10th time in the last 8 years.  Jim has won 10 of about the last 41 guesstimate races held!

     Rounding out the top five today were 2-  Rich Terrell (3 second miss), 3- Dave Parsel (4 second miss), 4- David Smith (5 second miss) and 5- Majorie Green (6 second miss). 

     The all time five top guesstimate winners are:  1- Jim Heller 11, 2- Jim Crandall 8, 3- Nelson Slagle 8, 4-  Mark Calkins 5, 5- Sam Kim 5- Joan McIntyre 5, Dave Parsel 5 and Garland Smith 5.   Jim Crandall had already won 8 guesstimate races and Nelson Slagle had won 7 guesstimate races before Jim Heller won his first race.  No other runner has won more than 3 guesstimate races since 2003!   

      DAVE PARSEL WINS LUNCH HOUR 5K ON NOVEMBER 14, 2011

     Dave Parsel won the November 14, 2011 lunch hour 5K with a time of 18:34. This was the 125th time that Dave has won this race.   Rounding out the top five into days race were David Schiller 2- 19:04, Randy Parker 3- 19:21, Andy Born 4- 20:36 and Sheila King 5- 20:45.

     Rich Terrell was the 18th runner to reach 100 lunch hour races ran last month when he ran our 5K the day after finishing a half marathon race.  Emmett Rahl ran his 107th race today after running 62 miles in a 100 mile event over the weekend.  Jim Scianni was babysitting for his grandson in Tustin and drove to the race and pushed his son in a stroller for his 110th race.   Thanks for your dedication guys.

     Soula Thomas continues to set a record each time she runs as the oldest runner ever to participate in our 5K as she ran as an 87 year old today and ironically ran a 44:43 (87 if you add minutes and seconds together). 

     The next 5K is scheduled for 11:50 AM Monday, December 12, 2011 at Gate 510 on the northwest corner of the Boeing Seal Beach Facility.  We will induct our 23rd member into our Seal Beach Runners Hall of Fame.
