Some still run back-to-backs in summer


June 28, 1994|By Michael Reeb | Michael Reeb,Sun Staff Writer

In the spring and fall -- when the racing calendar fills out -- it is not unusual to see the Cindy Carpenters, Maureen Halls and Maurice Pointers of the running world racing back-to-back events, following a Saturday 5K or 10K with a 10K or 5-miler the next day.

Come summer, when many clubs go to a weekday, twilight-series format, the more adventuresome elect to do the same.

Consider, for instance, Paul Hannsen, a Sykesville resident and a recent graduate of the University of Delaware.

Two weeks ago, Hannsen, 21, followed up participation in the Baltimore Road Runners Club's Summer Track Series on Wednesday with the Westminster Road Runners Club's Twilight Series on Thursday.

"I can't do both of them hard. That 2-mile time was probably the slowest time in that race in a long time," Hannsen said about his winning effort in the WRRC's 2-Mile Track Run. "Larry Pickett and I were talking about that. . . . It's just a good way to get a workout even if you don't race."

It's all in keeping with the Han-nsen profile.

Said Jeff Sanborn, his high-school coach at McDonogh: "He's been running since middle school. He started off with my wife as his middle school cross country coach way back when. And he ran all through high school; he ran two seasons each year. He's one of those distance runners who has that distance-running mentality."

But even they sometimes must slow it down a step.

Said Hannsen about his Summer Track Series performance the day before the 2-Mile Track Run: "I did the 1,500, 1,000 and 3-mile. I came in second in the 1,500. Jim [Clelland] caught me and he's pretty good. I didn't run the 1,000 that hard. I think I came in fourth. I won the 3-mile."

The next week, he elected to run only the WRRC's Camp Hashawa 3-miler and won in 17 minutes, 5 seconds.


The Maryland Masters Track Club will hold weight-throwing events on July 16, July 30, Aug. 13 and Aug. 27 at Catonsville High School. The events, which include shot put, discus, javelin, hammer and weight throws, have no entry fees. A championship meet tentatively is scheduled for Sept. 10 and will carry a small fee.
