Finley Leads Boomeragnar Team in a Race for Andee

On a wet and gloomy morning, more than 600 people (anticipated 200) could not be deterred in their support of a young woman named Andee Poulos, an eighth grader at Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School who is fighting an extremely rare condition called Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM). A little more than a year into her battle, Andee and her appropriately named Army, hosted the first annual Andee’s Army to raise funds to support children with brain injuries.

Three members of the Boomeragnar Racing Team came out — Phil Finley, Dean Trevelino and Rob Scheinman, along with the training team’s support arm, Kathie Scheinman and Grey Scheinman, as well as Trevelino colleague, Stephanie Silvera.  It was a strong showing across the board, but Phil Finley ran a smart, consistent race, pulling past Trevelino in the last mile to cross the line in a personal Atlanta record of 18:59 for seventh overall and second in the masters.  Trevelino cross behind Finley in 19:12 to take eighth overall and third in the masters.  Scheinman finished strong in approximately 27:40.

Collectively, it was another good prep run as the team enters April, just five months out from the Ragnar Relay and seven months out from the Havana Marathon.
