Two Road Races, Two Victories

A trio of NHTI Cross Country team members -- Nacho Hernando, Quinn Parker, and Danira Ibrahimovic -- decided that they would celebrate the end of the semester by running two 5K road races on Saturday December 7.  They ran the Frozen 5K in Laconia at 10 am.  There were only 111 finishers in this race, but it had a very competitive field.  Nacho won the race with a time of 15:38.  Quinn was 7th at 17:30, and Danira was 41st at 24:24.

They then headed south to Manchester and ran the much larger but less competitive Santa Claus Shuffle at 3 pm.  There were 2442 finishers.  Nacho also won this race with a time of 16:02.  Quinn once again finished in 7th place  with a time of 17:44.  Danira finished 367th with a time of 25:44.  What a great way to celebrate the end of the semester and get ready for finals!

If you would like to celebrate the end of the spring semester in this manner, join the NHTI Running Club.  Contact Perry Seagroves for details.
