DAVE PARSEL WINS 127th LUNCH HOUR 5K IN 18:51

Dave Parsel won the February 12, 2012 lunch hour 5K with a time of 18:51. This was the 127th time that Dave has won this race.  Rounding out the top five in todays race were Randy Parker 2- 19:26, Kie Soohoo 3- 22:29, Tiffany Forster 4- 22:36 and 5- Jim Heller 22:49.

Nelson Slagle ran his 300th race. The next three in races run are: Joan McIntyre 225, Rick Salas 210 and Jim Heller 170. Rick Salas gave Nelson two t-shirts for the second consecutive month. They were both LA Marathon shirts. Guess Rick felt 300 5Ks covering 930 miles was enough miles to qualify for an LA Marathon shirt. Thanks Rick. Nelson used the race and great running weather to run his 2nd best time in his last 15 races. And he finished ahead of a runner for the first time in his last 25 races and 2nd time in 54 lunch hour 5K races dating back to December 2005.

The threatening weather held the participation to 32, the lowest in 27 races dating to December 2009 when 26 participated.

Lynn Lin led five runners establishing a personal best (PB) by lowering her PB by a 6:06 in her 14th lunch hour 5K. Not to many runners break PBs after 10 races and Lynn has to be one of a few that ever broke a PB by 6:06 in their 14th race. Others establishing PBs were Dely Deleon (3:02 lower), Tiffany Forster (2:32 lower), Art Acebedo (34 seconds lower) and Brian Kern (19 seconds lower). Congrats to all of you PB setters.

For the first time in my memory a family of 4 ran the 5K. Jim Scianni pushed his grandson Dominic in a stroller while his daughter Natalie and grandson Michael both ran. Michael at age 12 was the 2nd youngest runner to finish our lunch hour 5K.

The next 5K is scheduled for 11:50 AM Monday, March 12, 2012 at Gate 510 on the northwest corner of the Boeing Seal Beach Facility.
