Moody, Cline top runners

Saturday’s race winners for the Comet 5K Run/Walk included a veteran runner and somewhat of a novice, with Bluestone High School cross country team competitor Aaron Moody and first-time 5K participant Shawnie Cline coming home with wins.

Moody topped a field of 28 runners and walkers with a time of 21:21.07, while Cline topped a field of 37 runners and walkers with a time of 24:38.96.

Will VanOsptal captured his second win in two years in the one-mile fun run, finishing with a time of 6:48.28.

“I came here and ran the first race they had here and finished third,” said Moody.

“It was nice to come back and finish first overall this time.”

“It’s a good course,” added Moody, who attributed his win to a more disciplined training regimen since his first Comet 5K several years ago. 

“It’s helped me to be a better runner, said Moody, who plans on running the YMCA 5K later this spring.

“I was satisfied with my time.  I haven’t been running a lot lately, and I’m trying to get back into it finding more 5K races to run.

“It’s a good environment to be in, that’s why I like coming to these races.”

Cline, because of her work schedule, has to train alone on many occasions, won her first 5K Saturday in as many tries.

“I was excited about my time.  I’ve been running at home, about five miles a day, on hills and trails,” she explained.

“I ran today just because I thought it would be fun,” said Cline, who has been running for about six months.

“I’m a nurse, so it’s hard to get a group of people to run with, and I train by myself.”

“The course was pretty good, said Cline, adding running the steep hills at home helped prepare her for Saturday’s event.

“I was really excited for this.  I enjoyed it, and I had fun,” she concluded.
