JIM HELLER AND TIM HICKOK WIN GUESSTIMATE RACE

    Tim Hickok and Jim Heller both missed heir guesstimate time by two seconds to win the guesstimate race on September 12, 2010.  Jim and Tim both accomplished a rare feat, winning the guesstimate twice in one year.  The last time a runner won two guesstimate races in a year was in 2008 when Peter Lew and David Rusher won twice.  The other double winner in a year since 2001 was Jim Heller in 2004 and 2005.  Jim has won a record 9 guesstimate races.

      Rounding out the top five were Rick Salas and Lin Lynn 3- (3 second miss) and Randy Parker 5 – (5 second miss).

          DAVE PARSEL WINS SEPTEMBER 2010 5K IN 17:40

      Forty-one runners participated in the September 12, 2010 as Dave Parsel won his 112th race in a time of 17:40.  Rounding out the top five were Brian Conboy 2- 18:16, David Schiller 3- 18:26, John Araujo 4- 19:38 and Andy Born 5- 19:44.  The same first four runners also finished 1st thru 4th last month. 

      Seven runners finished under 20 minutes, the most since 8 ran under 20 minutes in January 2005.

      We had 41 runners today, the most in September since 41 ran in 2003.  This was the 5th month this year we had at least 40 runners, the first time that has happened since 2005.    

      Five runners established personal bests led by Stanley Mak who lowered his PB by 1:13.  Other runners establishing PB’s were:  Chris King (58 seconds better), Jon Steinberg (35 seconds better), Lin Lynn (28 seconds better) and Andi Kang (1 second better).  Chris King lowered his PB for the 4th time in the last 5 months.    Congrats to all of the PB setters.

 

      Emmett Rahl race walked the 5K in a time of 32:37.  I believe that is the fastest time this course has ever been race walked.  Congrats Emmett.

      The next 5K is scheduled for 11:50 AM Monday, October 11, 2010 at Gate 510.

                           JOAN MCINTYRE CELEBRATION OF LIFE OCT 1ST

       John McIntyre (Joan’s husband) sent me the following e-mail:

“I am John McIntyre, the husband of Joan McIntyre who recently passed away. We are having a Celebration of Life for her on Friday, October 1 at 10 AM

   If possible, Joan’s family would like this information circulated among (i.e. emailed to) the Boeing 5K runners in the hope that some of these people would show up at the Celebration ceremony.  Also, if you could dragoon a few into preparing something to say when the mike is passed around it would be much appreciated.”

      Info on announcement (not attached)

Share your memories, stories, experiences, joys, thoughts, and pictures with family and friends.

Friday October 1st 2010,

at 10:00 a.m.

El Dorado Park West

South East Corner of Studebaker & Willow

                               Long Beach CA, 90815

Our intention is that Joan’s Celebration of Life be a casual and informal affair. This is why we have chosen a Park Setting. It is in tune with Joan’s love of camping and the outdoors. So nothing as formal as an RSVP will be requested. For obvious reason, however, a rough estimate of how many people might come is needed. So we would very much appreciate the favor of a reply from each family or group planning to attend. Listed below is a phone number and email address for Joan’s son (John) who you can contact to assist with our planning. (714) 514 6739 johnmcintyre@socal.rr.com

Lunch will be served after the ceremonies
