Maggie Conley and Sam Yount took on all comers at the Silicon Valley Tri Club's Chick Chaser 5K. Although not given a very PC title, the race mirrored many big marathons and large road races, giving the women a three minute head start. Taking full advantage, Maggie Conley broke the tape first, also combining for the fastest couple prize with Sam Yount, who finished third among men.
On Sunday, Nick Scalfone took on several Olympians in cow and bull costumes as he emerged victorious on the Palo Alto Grand Prix's Running of the Bulls 5K in Palo Alto. Although the streak has primarily included women's winners, Nick becomes part of a club tradition, where a member has won this race six of the past seven years.
Jesus Romo again took to the track at the West Coast Invitational at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon. Running his first steeple of the year, Romo finished third in 9:05, just three seconds away from his personal best.
Next weekend, look for the purple at the 102nd Bay to Breakers 12K in San Francisco, as well as the GryFUN 5K Run at Crystal Springs Uplands School in Hillsborough.
