The morning of Saturday, July 30, 2011 was a busy one in the little Jersey Shore town of Sea Girt, NJ. At 8 AM the town held its annual Mile Swim in the ocean. Then a short time later the Annual Parker House 2 Mile Run was held starting just a block away from the start and finish of the mile swim. There was over 100 participants in the mile swim and over a thousand participants in the 2 mile run.
The ocean temperature for the swim was on the cool side just about 70 degrees. The weather for the runners was on the warm side with sunny humid conditions. It sdid not deter the runners and the top finishers who put in some pretty speedy times.
For the men coming in first overall was Peter Geithner of Larchmont, NY in 9:22. He was followed by Matt Walsh of Wantagh, NY in 9:33 and Stephen Rothwell of White Plains, NY in 10:20.
For the women the winner was Kaitlin Morley of Hoboken in 12:00. She was followed by Ashley Nerr also of Hoboken in 12:16 and Christyy Grandjean of White Plains, NY in 12:25.
