ATM Recap and Our World Record Holder Gets International Coverage

It was a quite weekend on the race front.  Sunday morning featured one of the largest and most competitive races in the MD/DC area...the Army 10 Miler.  Our crew was smaller than normal this year.  The headline of the race was  the long awaited return of grandmaster, Weems McFadden.  Weems has been battling lingering injuries for much of the past year but has finally gotten healthy and restarted his racing career.  My sources tell me he's been running 50 mile weeks and slowly throwing in some faster runs.  It's always fun to watch him go head to head with fellow rival John Chall for grandmaster AG wins.  The weather on Sunday was quite nice.  The course was allegedly about 0.1 miles long.  Results as follows:
Mark Buschman 53:44 44th PR
Weems McFadden 1:03:44 441st
John Chall 1:03:48 449th

Meanwhile, in Ohio, Adam ran his fifth race in as many weekends (including four consecutive marathons), the Youngtown Peace 10k Race.  He indicated his legs didn't have lots of spring in them, but he still managed a respective 35:29, good for 25th overall and 4th in his AG.

In related news, Keith received some international press for his World Record marathon run in flip flops at Baltimore two weekends ago.  A reporter from Yajiuma! TV in Japan contacted Carlos asking for permission to run a story on Keith's amazing feat.  Here is the article posted on the TV station's website:

We have a big weekend ahead.  Keith, Conrad, and Kevin take on the Marine Corps Marathon in DC on Sunday.  Good luck fellas...GET SOME!!!  If anyone reading this is also running the marathon or 10k, good luck to you as well!
