Twilight Series #1: Owl 2-mile Track Run, 2016

26 May 2016
Westminster High School Track
Westminster, MD

This year, the kickoff to the Twilight Series was renamed from the Owl 2 Mile Track Run to the Jim Myers 2 Mile Track Run. So this year I will forgo the usual owl-related puns, as if anyone gave a hoot, and tell you a little about Jim (which I am plagiarizing from Facebook). Jim was a prodigious marathoner, having completed over 80 marathons. In one epic 3 day period in 1986, Jim completed 3 marathons in 3 days: Rotterdam (3:40), London in a downpour (4:30) and Boston (3:37).

 

The celebration of running in honor of Jim started off the heat for women and children. The absence of Sherry Stick left the door open for some smooth, young runners to take the lead. The first lap of 8 was led by Reed Postlethwait and Nathan Chalk, just 10 and 11, respectively. They were overtaken in the second lap by the deceptively fast Rubie Goffena, just 12 years old herself. This young lady knows her pace and stayed strong to win the heat and finish first among women in 13:08. The young men showed their grit and experience and did not fade, coming in next to each other in 13:34. Tina McCubbin was the second woman and first masters. Valerie White rounded out the podium.

 

The second heat was the open men's heat. It was led from start to finish by Arthur Leathers, except that it wasn't. Ryan Taylor, who looked like he was trying to hang on behind Arthur, kicked it into another gear late and cruised to a winning time of 10:31. Arthur was no slouch in 10:38, holding off Colin Russell by 4 seconds. Early high-schoolers Noah Griffin and Charlie Ferguson gave notice for the future as they also came in under 11 minutes. Karsten Brown was the fastest masters at the meet, eschewing the masters heat for greater competition.

 

The men's masters was the final heat of the day. Isaac Fulkerson let much older John Way think for a little while that he could win the heat, but such hopes were crushed. Isaac took the lead a couple laps in and pulled away for a comfortable win in 12:51. Jeff Francis, Steve Nelson and Robert Muhl were the next three across the line. (Note: the self-reporting of times on finisher cards in this heat was a great help in attempting to resolve a few discrepancies.)

 

Tim Gosnell ably directed this rather complicated event. Other crucial volunteers included Heather Burker, Liuda Galinaitis, Joe Loveland, Chris Reese and Wendy Steele. There were more, and hopefully we can credit them as well.
