ENRIQUE SAN TOYO WINS AUGUST 5K IN A TIME OF 20:27

     Enrique San Toyo won his first lunch hour 5K in a time of 20:27 on August 13, 2012.  This was the first time in 324 lunch hour races that no runner broke 20 minutes.  It broke the slowest winning time set last month by John Araujo in 19:55.  The temperature was in 75-78 temperature range which seemed like a cold wave compared with most of Southern California.  Seal Beach high temperature today was 79!  Enrique beat runner up John Araujo by 40 seconds as only one runner broke 21:07 in today’s race.

      No one set a personal best today and the closest  to a personal best (PB) was Enrique who ran 26 seconds slower than his PB.  Ironically, Enrique was the only runner set a personal best last month.

      Dave Parsel suffered some sort of nerve entry in his hip prior to the Seal Beach 5K/10K ran on April 21, 2012.   The only 4 times he has ran since have been the lunch hour 5K’s in May, June, July and August.  Dave says injury is slowly healing and the lunch hour races he has ran doesn’t appear to slow down the healing process.  Naturally his times keep getting slower.

     Dave Parsel ran his 60th straight race today, the 5th longest in the history of the lunch hour 5K.  Emmett Rahl has now ran in 51 straight races which is the 9th longest streak.  Jon Steinberg’s 28 race streak ended today.  The next longest streaks are now Jim Scianni 18, Nelson Slagle 12, Jim Heller 10 and Ken Saxton 9.

     We had 42 runners participate today, the 2nd most in August since 50 ran in August 2001.  We also had 46 runners in August 2010.  This is the 5th month in the last six that at least 40 participated in the lunch hour 5K.  Since 2003, only in 2010 did we have at least 5 months with 40 participants.  We had 6 months with 40+ runners in 2010.  We have four months left in 2012 to tie that mark.

      My web site host is apparently out of business and my web site is not assessable.  Its could be several months before a new site is established.  In the meantime, I will be attaching 5K results to my e-mails distributing the race results.

          The next 5K is scheduled for 11:50 AM Monday, September 10, 2012 at Gate 510 on the northwest corner of the Boeing Seal Beach Facility.
