Maizie brought October to MVXC in style, running a great race at the Belmont Invitational on Friday. Unable to compete at Thetford on Saturday due to SAT’s, she was able instead to compete in the second best meet of the weekend, Belmont.

With almost perfect conditions (perfect is slightly colder with a slight drizzle), she was able to run the best race of her long career, although most of the thanks is probably due to her cheering section of Eeeemaaa, Trish, Sophaloaf, and Mad G. Consistently passing runners the whole way, Maizie not only beat 2/3rds of the competition (29th of 89), she also ran a 24:43, which on Belmont’s pointlessly long course (5142 meters, to be exact) converts to a 5k of 24:03. That’s a big PR, everybody, and a great way to start the Month Of Champions(hips)!
