Results of Mother's Day Race Given

May 14, 2007 – Perhaps because it was Mother's Day, Sunday's 2-mile footrace brought out more women than men and required categories that suited the diversity of the field. Some walked, some ran. Colette Monroe, running strong in the "serious-minded women" category, took first in 16 minutes and 6 seconds and was preceded only by the leader in the "teenage males" category, Johnny Lenahan. Young Lenahan ran 15:04 to beat his Dad, Kevin, by 6 minutes and 4 seconds and finish ahead of the entire field.
Jane Wherren's 20:17 put her second to Monroe in the same category, ahead of Gayle Deller in 24:24. Carole Lenahan finished third in this category but clearly was first in the "moms who brought their kids to the race" category. Yet, like Kevin, she was outrun by an offspring. Teenager Francie Lenahan ran 26:13.9, narrowly edging out Mom by 0.2 second. In the "young adult women" category, Gaylin Vogel, fresh from a successful triathlon, finished first in 20:33, followed by Kendra Nielsam in 21:24.
The Father's Day Run, also a 2-miler, will take place at 7:30 a.m., on June 17, in Frenchtown.
