Dukes Represent at La Luz - Houghton Three-Peats!


In a dominating performance, the Dukes Track Club, placed four runners in the top five overall at Sunday's La Luz Trail Run.

1.   Kristopher Houghton - Dukes Track Club
2.   Chris Peverada - Dukes Track Club (running as Andrew Gisler)
3.   Ryan Fenton - Bandit Runner
4.   Loren Wohletz - Dukes Track Club
5.   Jesse Armijo - Dukes Track Club

. . .

17. Patrick - Dukes Track Club (running as Dustin Hillerman)
19. Trevor Manzanares - Dukes Track Club

It was Houghton's third win overall on the historic mountain race.  New-comer Chris Peverada (aka Lingrini) showed his talent, finishing second place overall in his first race at altitude and his first race for the Dukes. Loren Wohletz made a huge jump in the race with a four minute personal best on the race course, as he prepares for his first 100-miler later this September in Utah.  Jesse Armijo pushed the pace early on, but was forced to run conservatively through the more treacherous sections in light of his selection for the US team, which competes in Canada in two short weeks.

Now most of you who know me (and few of you do, but I plan to change all of that), know I bring up the back of the pack.I’m more of a mule these days, dragging my butt to the ground and my belly in a wheel barrow.I have re-invented myself as a runner many times, from the age of 13-28, a long vacation from running between the ages of 28-42 (ate much, drank more, lounged often) then hit a resurgence at age 42.By then my fast years were a memory, …
