Twilight Series #4: Pleasant Valley 4-mi Run, 2015

09 July 2015
Pleasant Valley Volunteer Fire Department 
Westminster, MD 
Stick, Parsons still on fire

For the second year in a row, Mother Nature gave us a break by getting the thunderstorm out of the way before our 7pm start. 78 runners conquered the wet, rolling out-and-back four mile course. The crucial water stop and finish line volunteers were Heather, Paige and Bree Burker, Wendy Steele, Rachel Griffith, Tim Gosnell and race director Liuda Galinaitis. (Chase Burker and Ethan Steele joined their family members as blyvolunteers last time at Hashawha, by the way.)

In the women's race, Sherry Stick and Colleen Kernan were able to run comfortably alone as first and second, racing only against the faster men. Third woman and first masters Tonna Arbaugh had a great race, taking off over a minute from a year ago, and beating fourth place Valerie White for the first time this year. Jean Smink, Chris Reese and Yvonne Aasen repeated their respective age group wins from last year. Maddie Arbaugh won the youngest group.

The men had a typical battle for the win for this year's Twilight Series. Karsten Brown and Jesse Parsons ran together for most of the race. Jesse's finishing push (patent pending) where he pulled away started at the hill with three-quarters of a mile to go. Ben Arbaugh held off a pair of Russells, Taylor and Colin, to complete the podium. Brandon Arbaugh, John Way, James Moreland and Jim Bullock were the additional age group winners, with the latter two repeating from last year.

We were all winners with well-earned post-race Popsicles. Our next Popsicle opportunity is in two weeks with the 6K at FSK High School.
