This morning in Boyce Park, I ran the Pittsburgh Wild trail 10k and placed first overall with a time of 46:09. This is probably one of the toughest races I’ve ever run.
I won some serious loot, too. $30 Elite Runners gift, $15 RoadID gift, Pearl Izumi Tri Elite Short and shirt, 1st place plaque and metal.

With my recent loss, it was tough for me to win such an honorable award and not be able to share the great news with my dad.
I pondered what I should say, this is truly an honor to be voted by my peers. Thank you, to the XC athletes, USATF Three Rivers Association, Greensburg YMCA XC, Brooks Running and the Coach ID program, and most importantly my family.
The Association is excited to complete the first year of the program by acknowledging the cross county winners below with a commemorative plaque and sharing more on each awardee in the newsletter found here.

Eight-year-old Emma Orndorff of Hempfield is known for her sweet disposition on the Greensburg YMCA cross country team. She really will have something to smile …
Thanks Brooks Running! My kids loved these beanie hats and the other teams were envious! Not picture was the black Brooks crew socks, fantastic gifts that I used for personal Cross Country achievements. Just another way to keep the kids motivated. Keeping youth Cross Country running happy!
2015 GBG Turkey Trot PR
It’s finally starting to happen my injuries of the previous 2 Years have finally been corrected and I get my fastest TT time.
I ran a 19:00 flat to earn 1st in age and 2nd masters. I was 17 Overall out of 2300 timed/non-timed runners.
Even 1k laps
Color coded pace. Not the hill at the 4K mark. Yeah that sucked…
Shirt, age trophy and corporate cup! Thanks Chris and Steve we pulled off the cup, too!
Farther & Son Sweep of the Marshall Mangler 5 Mile. Mark completely owned this race and was minutes ahead of me, but he and I got lost the last 1/4 mile. I was unsure the last quarter mile due to lack of marker flags and i find Mark running back to me. We finished together. However we were still both 2 1/2 minutes ahead of the 3rd runner.
Since he crushed this course I let him win, looking back i should of made him earn it 😉
At Coopers Lake Campgrounds the home course of University of Slippery Rock Cross Country.
It was a mixed event with 15-16, 17-18, Open and masters.
I was third in the race and was the first masters.
I ran a 19:37 not a great time but I was minutes ahead of the other masters and gave in to the younger runners.http://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/951378352
This course is tricky and need to be careful the first 400 meters, since it’s the largest hill of the race. The hill is partially rerun in the 3rd kilometer but excludes the steepest climb.
The best part of this race I won $50.
