Master-piece 16:01 for Charlie Kern
Masters runner extraordinarie Charlie Kern, who is a true trailblazer at age 42, took an overall victory on Sunday, April 15, at the Hornet Hustle 5K in Darien. His time of 16:01.1 blew away the field. I'm really not surprised, but that doesn't mean I can't say "wow!" and be blown away myself just thinking about it. Lydia Wong, 23, of Chicago, was the women's winner with a nice 18:53. Congrats to both and to the race organizers. For all of of you who were there, please think about entering the Community Bank of Elmhurst 4 on the 4th. Check out www.4on4th.com, and I hope to see you there! Again, congrats to Charlie, Lydia and the rest of the Hornet Huslers.
