NYC’s Jeremy Adler Repeats at Maine Marathon






It was 45 degrees with filtered sunlight for the 7:45 am start of the 19th annual Gorham Savings Bank Maine Marathon/Half Marathon & Relay.

 

In the half marathon, former
University of Southern Maine runners Nick Wheeler and Mike Bunker went out at a
5:09 pace and had a 2:00 minute lead at 3.5 miles where the third person was
Relay Runner Sheri Piers.

 

The lead duo split company
at four miles, at which point Bunker said, “My legs just fell apart.

 

Wheeler would win in 1:09:16
with Bunker second in 1:12:43. The women’s race was won by Texan Kathy Marshall, who outlegged Portland’s Andrea Newton, 1:23:39 to 1:26:49.

 

Piers was part of a Dirigo
Mixed Team
anchored by friend and training partner Kristin Barry. The squad was
the top Relay team in 2:21:22, tantalizingly close to the record 2:20:57 set by
Nor’Easter Run last year.

While only able to run 50-60
miles a week while clerking for a judge in Brooklyn, Adler ‰ÛÓ who’d run 2:32:55
at Boston this April ‰ÛÓ didn’t mind his solo jaunt out past the inner harbor to
Yarmouth and back.

 

“I never felt alone out
there because the crowd support is great here and the course is beautiful, I
just love the fact that even though I’m working I’m still able to continue
running. It wasn’t ideal marathon training but it’s worked out well,” said
Adler, who broke the tape in Baxter Boulevard in 2:36:35 after running 2:38:57 in 2009. Hyde Park’s Marc Gilbertson, 41, placed second in 2:40:49.
 
Glastonbury, CT’s Jennifer Jorgenson, 27, won the women’s race by almost 11 minutes in 3:00:55.
