DAN NICKLES MISSES GUESSTIMATE BY 2 SECONDS TO WIN

     Dan Nickles predicted his finishing time with two seconds to win his first guesstimate race on May 14, 2012.  Rounding out the top five were: 2- Tim Hickok 3 second miss, Mary Nickles 3- 4 second miss, Nelson Slagle 3- 4 second miss and David Smith 5- 6 second miss.                

                              TIM HICKOK WINS MAY 2012 5K WITH A TIME OF 19:52

     Tim Hickok won the May 14, 2012 lunch hour 5K with a time of 19:52.  Tim also won the race in April 2007 with a time of 19:33.  The 19:52 finishing time was the slowest winning time since October 1997 when Henry Rodriguez won the race in 19:58.  Rounding out the top five in today’s race were Andy Born 2- 20:28, Randy Parker 3- 20:38, Nam Ngo 4- 21:22 and Dave Parsel 5- 22:11.

      Dave Parsel and Nelson Slagle used Dave’s wheel to accurately mark the turn around point on the San Gabriel River Trail.  The turn around point is approximately 17 yards further, now about 15 feet before reaching the tennis courts.  It is marked by a green 5K on a rock right beside the trail on the right side. 

     We had 41 runners today to mark the 3rd straight month with at least 41 runners the longest streak since 2003 when we had at least 41 runners in 10 straight races from October 2002 thru May 2003.      

     Despite a course that is now 34 yards longer, we had 5 runners that established personal bests today.  Michael Scianni and Natalie Scianni both lowered their Personal Best (PB) by 11:39, Luis Lopez lowered his PB by 1:03, Dan Nickles ran 43 seconds faster and Art Acebedo lowered his PB by 8 seconds.

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