Annual Meeting attendees enjoy Boardwalk Run at Virginia Beach

The
USA Track & Field Foundation was pleased to welcome more than 70
runners, walkers, and joggers to the Virginia Beach Boardwalk at 7 a.m.
on Friday morning.  

Foundation
Executive Director Tom Jackovic hosted the 5 km event, along with USATF
Foundation Board members Willie Banks and Jack Wickens, and USATF Board
members Deena Kastor and Philip Dunn.

First
across the line into a strong Virginia coastal headwind was Patrick
Lynskey and Jim Garcia, both timed in 19:22.  First women across were
Jessica Crate and Laura Bowerman, who both finished in 20:26.  The
first male race walker to complete the course was three-time Olympian
Philip Dunn in 26:19, and the first female heel-and-toer across the
finish line was Maryanne Daniel, newly named IAAF race walk judge.

Olympic
medalist Deena Kastor, well into her pregnancy, jogged steadily and
finished in 30:36, which allowed nearly 50 finishers to claim victory
over her.
Among the helpers at the event were Banks, Dan Pierce, and foundation grant recipients Britney Henry and Russ Winger.
