Tussey Teaser #2: Tussey to Whipple 11 Miler
Rothrock State Forest
April 12, 2015
It was mild for this run and there was no snow to be seen en route to Whipple Dam. Sayard Tanis plunged through the course and knocked more than 5 minutes off the women’s course mark that had stood since 2009. Josh Litofsky claimed first in the men’s race.
Lydia Hayes ran her first miles in Rothrock this day, and Eva Pauli did the same. Several runners did the double, running first from Whipple to Tussey, then joining the rest on this run back to the lake: including John Iceland, Adam Ilgen, Bob Shafer and Mike Zimmerman.
Thanks to Barb Kelsey for assistance with picking up the party subs, registration, and recording finishers. Thanks to Subway for support of this run series.
Those who run all five “official” Teasers (#1-#5, February’s #0 run being a bonus) will be eligible for a special prize drawing after Teaser #5, the Eager Seeger Half Marathon.
The next Tussey Teaser is May 9, the age- and gender-graded race, the Beidleheimer Sidewinder 10K, run in reverse on Leg 4 of the Tussey mOUnTaiNBACK course.
