4th Annual Hustle for Russell 5K
Pleasant View Middle School

Results and Report by Jeff Arnold

The 4th Annual Hustle for Rustle was held at Pleasant View Middle School 11/6/06. It featured fun runs for kids on the track, a 1 mile walk, and 5K walk, none of which were timed, as well as a 5k Run. This was apparently the best turnout they’ve had, including volunteer teachers.

There were no times or places kept in the kids’ runs or the walks. My estimate is that there were probably 25-30 walkers. I started last of the runners but eventually caught a PV seventh grader named Brandon. I slowed a bit and encouraged him, but felt surprisingly good. When we caught a PV girl who was running just before the mile mark, Brandon joined her in walking. I began to increase my pace from the 10:40 I di, which was a pleasant surprise.

I didn’t see the front of the race for more than a minute, but Paul Murphy and Kyle Reno ran together for awhile. Kyle later said he eased off for a bit and Paul kept going all the way to a 12 second victory. Kyle’s girlfriend, Tina Gray was also second, behind Pueblo West freshman Anna Marshall. They were easily 7th and 8th overall of 24 running finishers.

The race was well organized, the flat course was well marked and we had the chance to finish on the track. There were numerous door prizes. I won a $10 certificate from Pasta Cottage.
