DAN BRECHT WINS HIS FIRST LUNCH HOUR 5K IN 21:05

      Dan Brecht won his first lunch hour 5K by running a 21:05 on November 11, 2013.  Dan became the 37th different runner to win our lunch hour 5K.  We have had 339 races to date.

    Stephanie Harris led 4 runners setting personal best (PB) by lowering her PB by 5:19.  Robert Lubanski lowered his PB by 44 seconds, Dan Brecht reduced his PB by 36 seconds and Nicole lowered her PB by 36 seconds.  Congrats to all of you record breakers.

    The 5 runners participating in all eleven 2013 races are: Dave Parsel 63 straight races, Emment Rahl 54 straight races, Kie Soohoo 12 straight races, Mong Noiboonsook 12 straight races and Nelson Slagle 12 straight races.

      Dave Parcel ran the November race with a broken collar bone and his arm in a sling.  This was the first time Dave has ran since he had an accident with his bike two weeks ago.  Dave also rode his bike out to the turn-around point to place two cones to make it easier for us runners to spot the turn-around point.  Thanks Dave!

     The next 5K will be Monday, December 9, 2013 at 11:50 AM.  We will induct our 25th runner into the Seal Beach runners hall of fame.
