Winter Series 2018-2019

The Winter Warriors

These are the people who no matter how frigid it was in the dark mornings of winter managed to motivate themselves to race around the SUNY Albany track.  The energy and enthusiasm each morning as people arrived for the events was so exciting it almost made you forget how cold it was.

John Sestito ran four events and volunteered for the
fifth, thus winning the Winter Series Survivor hat that
he can be seen sporting here.


I was unable to locate photos of Thomas Dansereau and Keith Donegan who ran all five!!
