Wang and Dole Rock the Speed Series

The Al Goldstein Speed Series 5Ks got off to a wet start on 5/21, but it didn't dampen the times of Gary Wang (19:02)and Helen Dole (20:09) who led PPTC runners accross the finish. Brad Skillman,Jed Stiles, Jill Merenda, Frank DeLeo, David Lansner and Carolyn Kubitschek also wrung out the leading times in their age groups.
Be there in 2 weeks to celebrate a special "Bring-A-Buddy" race. If you are a PPTC member, you can bring a friend to run for free. Let's see what kind of excuse they give you now.
