Marsh Pointe Elementary School 5k – Recap and Results

Palm Beach Roadrunners gladly added support to this race for young runners in our area. The 5th Marsh Pointe Elementary 5k was held yesterday in beautiful conditions. We had low humidity and temperatures that started in the mid-60s. This year’s event saw the most number of registered runners, including a good showing from middle school runners that were returning to their former elementary school. Next year, there is planning underway to have an awards category for middle school runners.

We expect to have photos and some movie clips as taken from the drone that flew near the Start/Finish area. Please visit again soon as we gather photos and more information from the race…

Past Event: Movie Night with PBRR

Boston: The Documentary

Wednesday, April 19th, 7:30 pm

We had a great showing this past week for the movie. Not surprisingly, a good number of our local runners that competed in this year’s Boston Marathon were also in attendance.

The movie was very well done, hopping from recent interviews to newsreel clips from the past. You did not have to be a runner to enjoy this film, the story was well laid out and organized. Having been just in Boston for the race, it was surreal seeing all that I had just experienced plus the history behind it. Hope you enjoyed the show!

~ Dave M.

———————————————————————————————————————–

A new documentary from the director of “Spirit of the Marathon,” Boston: The Documentary will bring the history and heroes of this most special annual running event to life. For those that have run the fabled route from Hopkinton to Boyleston Street, it will be a sweet recollection of an incredible day. For those looking to qualify and run in the Boston Marathon someday soon, the film will provide ample motivation to get your feet moving!

PBRR will be in force at this showing – it’s only ONE NIGHT at ONE TIME. Come see the movie with other passionate runners, families, and friends! Wear your Boston shirts, jackets, hats – let’s make this a celebration of our sport and shared love of running and fitness.

Past Event: March Social featuring Lee DiPietro

Our social event was a big success! Our members had the opportunity to meet local author, runner and triathlete Lee DiPietro. Her book, “Against The Wind” details her successful run and athletic career and how it helped her when the going REALLY got tough!

The Sports Page, a popular venue for our “speaker” socials, proved to be a good choice as over 40 people came to mingle and hear Lee share her story. She gave a compelling overview of the book and her career as a runner and professional triathlete. A very informative Q&A session followed, with attendees learning some of the high points of Lee’s career as well as fun race stories and memories. Lee and her husband spend their winters in Palm Beach County, our big run season. We expect to continue to see Lee at our races and local events throughout South Florida!

Against The Wind is a story of the remarkable endurance required to become an Ironwoman and of the uncommon endurance it took to bring my family through an unimaginable year of heartache. The two are related, and that is the soul of Against the Wind: An Ironwoman’s Race for Her Family’s Survival.
This book is a 360º perspective on meeting the challenges of training for and racing in marathons, triathlons and finally the Ironman. Becoming an Ironwoman prepared me for a very personal test when the lives of those I love were threatened all at once. It is the stuff of novels, only this was my reality. – Lee DiPietro

“Dear Palm Beach Roadrunners,

Thank you so much for the scholarship to the Warrior Running Camp.  I had a wonderful time!  I learned a lot about running and how to be both a better teammate as well as a leader.  The instructors were very knowledgeable and taught me new running techniques and form.  I enjoyed being able to spend time with people who share my same interests.  I made a lot of new friends and bonded with my teammates.  I learned many new things that I will share with my cross country and track team.  Thank you for giving me an opportunity that I otherwise may not have had.  I really appreciate your generosity and the opportunity to attend the Warrior Running Camp.

Thank you for a great week and one that I will never forget.

Sincerely, Julia Volpi”

 

 

“Thank you to all on the Palm Beach Roadrunners Team for enabling me to attend the Warrior Running Camp this year. I had so much fun at the camp, I learned a lot, and overall my team and I had an amazing experience. Thank you so much!! Annie Allmark”
