ANDI KANG WINS SEPTEMBER 9, 2013 GUESSTIMATE RACE

     Andi Kang missed her prediction of her finishing time by 4 seconds to win the September 9, 2013 guesstimate race.  This was the first time Andi has won the guesstimate race.  Rounding out the top five were 2- Emment Rahl  7 second miss, 3- Mong Noiboonsook 10 second miss, 4- Dave Parsel  14 second miss and 5- Jim Heller 21 second miss.

                                DAVE PARSEL WINS SEPTEMBER 9, 2013 5K IN 19:45

     Dave Parsel won his 131st lunch hour 5K in a time of 19:45 on September 9, 2013.     Rounding out the top five were:  Tim Hickok 2- 20:34, Gavin McKiernan 3- 21:04, Dan Brecht 4- 22:04, and  Kie Soohoo 5- 22:16.

     Danny Brecht is the only runner setting a personal best by knocking one minute off of his previous best.

     Thanks to John Araujo for coming out on crutches to cheer on his fellow runners.  And thanks to Dave Parsel for dropping off small cones at the turn around point.  Mary Nichols made a case for cones on the running trail exiting the bike path on Westminster Blvd.  She ran right by the exit and by the time she realized she ran by the trail exit she had added about 4 and a half minutes to her time and likely costing her a 3rd place finish.

     The 5 runners participating in all nine 2013 races are: Dave Parsel 61 straight races, Emment Rahl 52 straight races, Kie Soohoo 10 straight races, Mong Noiboonsook 10 straight races and Nelson Slagle 10 straight races.

      Twenty-four runners finished today’s 5K, the fewest finishers since September 2008 when 23 finished. 

      The next Seal Beach lunch hour 5K is scheduled for 11:50 AM Monday, October 14, 2013 at Gate 510 on the northwest corner of the Boeing Seal Beach Facility.
