5K National Championships Syracuse 
by Devin Croft

The BRR Men's Team won the 60+ Men's division today in Syracuse over a very tough field. That gives us 2 National titles in 2015 with more possible in Tulsa, Alexandria and San Francisco.

  1    18:59  Lloyd Hansen          67 Salt Lake City       UT 
  2    19:57  Wally Hayes           63 Ann Arbor            MI 
  3    20:13  Aaron Pratt           61 Saline               MI 
  4 (  24:39) Mitchell Garner       65 Ann Arbor            MI 
Current standings after today's race are:
Genesee Valley Harriers  330  (4th, 2nd 1st and 2nd placings in four events)
Ann Arbor Track Club     320  (3rd, 3rd, 2nd and 4th placings in four events)
Boulder Road Runners     200  (1st, 1st in two events)
So we're the only team with 2 wins. With four events remaining we only need to score in 3 of them to complete the 5 minimum needed. Ann Arbor and Genesee Valley said they are not taking teams to Tulsa this year in the 60+ Division. So we still stand a good chance of winning the entire series if we can form teams for Tulsa, Alexandria and San Francisco.
CU Rocky Mountain Shootout
The result of the CU Rocky Mountain Shootout, this past Saturday at Buffalo Ranch, could not have been better.  Both men and women had a perfect scores.  Team ranking is still: men #1 and women # 2.  Go Buffs!

Lynne is a relative newcomer to the Boulder Road Runners.  Originally from the Midwest, Lynne has lived and worked all over the country--most recently, in Washington, DC, where she led public-private collaboration in the fields of disaster management, biodefense, and public health preparedness.  She moved to Boulder in 2013, literally transforming her life from 60-hour workweeks and 90-minute commutes, to simple pleasures like running and spending as much time as possible outdoors.  
Lynne was born and raised in Rochester, Indiana, the second of five children.  Her mother was a schoolteacher and her father a judge.  She earned a B.A. from Indiana University (Romance languages and Political Science), a Master’s degree from the University of Texas at Austin, and later did additional postgraduate study in public administration at George Mason University.  She is the mother of three grown sons, (Josh, Adam, and Paul), and the grandmother of Sophie, 12, and David, 9.
Lynne’s early career included eight years as professional staff in the U.S. Senate, executive-level management in state government, and corporate government affairs. From 1996-2004, she was the executive director of the North Bay Council, a non-profit organization of chief executives in Marin and Sonoma Counties, where she led collaborative initiatives among private employers, public officials and other civic leaders.  Besides enjoying the recreation and beauty of Northern California with her family, she had the privilege of working with leaders of companies such as Lucasfilm, Autodesk, and Kendall-Jackson Winery.  (Skywalker Ranch was a great venue for a Christmas party!)
Back to Washington in 2004, her public-private facilitation work turned to focus on disaster management and resilience, homeland security, and public health preparedness. From 2005-2010, Lynne served as the Senior Vice President for Partnerships at Business Executives for National Security (BENS), where she directed BENS’ nationwide effort to improve public-private collaboration and civil-military coordination to support all-hazards disaster resilience.  She thrived on traveling 40 percent of the time, and most enjoyed the opportunity to work with senior business executives, the military, and public officials at all levels of government.  She later became the Washington-based senior advisor to the Center for Excellence in Disaster Management and Humanitarian Assistance—a Department of Defense direct reporting unit to US Pacific Command.  Her final position was as President of the Bipartisan WMD Terrorism Research Center, a not-for-profit research and education organization founded by former US Senators Bob Graham (D-FL) and Jim Talent (R-MO).  Until June of this year, Lynne also co-chaired the Institute of Medicine’s Forum on Medical and Public Health Preparedness for Catastrophic Events.
While active most of her adult life, Lynne only began running at the age of 55, after her husband had suffered a catastrophic health event. Not surprisingly, her work had always demanded extremely long hours, but now she had to also incorporate trips to the hospital, rehab, and later care-taking for both her husband and elderly mother-in-law.  Lots of stress!  She learned to survive on four or five hours of sleep, leaving her Maryland home at 4:00 a.m. for DC and working out at her office gym before work. 
Early one morning, there was a fire drill at the gym, and she stood outside chatting with the only other person in the gym at that hour.  (She learned later that he was a former Chief of Staff of the Army!)  He invited her to come running with him the next morning, just three miles on the National Mall.  Lynne wasn’t a runner, but she reluctantly tried it.  While it left her breathless, she was hooked!  For the difficult years that followed, running was the only activity that she did strictly for herself, and Lynne is certain that it saved her life. 
Over the next seven years, she ran solo...averaging 35-40 mile weeks, but without the benefit of coaching or running partners.  She ran a few 5K Turkey Trots, but then decided to take on the Marine Corps Marathon as a goal.  Lynne ended up doing the MCM three times—long, embarrassingly slow, but a sense of empowerment to finish.
While on a Colorado business trip in 2012, Lynne came to Boulder to visit her brother for a day and loved it.  On a a second visit, in January 2013, she quickly decided it was the peaceful, healing place for the next phase of her life.  She commuted back and forth to DC for a while, but soon became a permanent resident, buying a home last year.  During her early time in Boulder, Lynne joined BRR and felt an instant rapport as she discovered the joy of running with others.
Lynne initially was not interested in racing, but after joining the Boulder Road Runners and training with Revolution Running, she began feeling stronger and wanted to gauge her progress.  She most enjoys distances from 10 miles to half-marathons, but has stepped up her racing at shorter distances as well, to gain experience.  She placed 3rd and 2nd AG in her first two half marathons, (Annapolis, 2012 & 2013). This summer, Lynne ran both the Colorado Half and Georgetown-Idaho Springs Half in under two hours and placed 1st AG in this year’s Equinox Half, after placing second last year. In her first 10K, Bolder Boulder (2013), Lynne finished in 58:15 and was 6th in her age division.  In August of this year, she ran the Evergreen 10K in 52:05.  Although she is soon to be 65, Lynne is in the enviable position of setting PRs as her race times continue to improve. 
After a life in big cities and an exciting, but exhausting career, Lynne is grateful to be in Boulder and is relishing a greatly simplified life.  She remarked at the number of good  friends she has found here—the majority of whom are runners.  Besides running, she is rediscovering cooking and enjoys reading, music, and exploring the beauty of her new home state. To her delight, her two younger sons moved to Colorado last year and are both working in the Denver area, so she sees them and her brother frequently.  Lynne is committed to keeping her life simple, with running, family, and friendships as her main focus.
Lynne said that it’s difficult to describe just how much running has changed her life, but she says it perfectly. 
During difficult times, running is her salvation. 
On good days, running is her celebration.

Dear BRR
I've registered and committed to riding in, YSC Tour de Pink, October 23-25. I will ride over 200 miles and raise at least $2,500 for Young Survival Coalition (YSC), the premier global organization dedicated to the critical issues unique to young women who are diagnosed with breast cancer. Please support my effort to help ensure that no young woman faces breast cancer alone. Any amount you can give will make a real difference.

  • $25 could fund YSC materials at three healthcare providers' offices
  • $100 could provide a Newly Diagnosed Navigator to six women when they need it most
  • $250 could allow us to train four survivors to serve as a peer supporters
  • $500 could fund a Young Empowered Survivor (YES) educational program
  • $1,200 could pay for two young women to travel to our annual conference for young women affected by breast cancer
