Pryde, Hochella are winded 10k winners

RUNNING

November 20, 1990|By Michael Reeb

The Greater Dundalk 10K is billed as a flat, fast course, but when the wind blows as it did for Sunday's run through historic Dundalk, speed becomes relative. Just ask James Pryde and Lorraine Hochella, who ran away with their divisions.

"I was at a 5-minute pace through 5 [miles] and then the wind got to me," Pryde said after he finished first in 31 minutes, 40 seconds -- more than a half-minute ahead of second-place finisher Doug Moyer.

For Hochella's 35:03 run -- more than 4 1/2 minutes ahead of Ellen Lutrey's -- the wind, which gusted at 21 mph out of the northwest, also became a factor.

"It wasn't against us all the way, but it was very windy," Hochella said. "I didn't feel like I had much leg speed at all."

Hochella, who lives in Newport News, Va., is getting ready for the Houston Marathon in January.

"This was a kind of trial to see how I'm doing," she said. "I came up [to Baltimore] to see my mother-in-law [who lives in Bel Air] and my coach [Alan Dean]."

Pryde also might be getting ready for a marathon.

"I'm mostly trying just to stay in shape and trying not to overtrain," he said. "I think that was my problem, and that's why my times have been coming down."

The Greater Dundalk honors the memory of Bo Lapetina, an employee of Dundalk Community College and a longtime member of the Baltimore Road Runners Club, who directed the race.

The top runners among the 234 finishers:
