Congratulations to Port Washington runners Oliver Melara and his mom Karen Melara, each of whom won an award in the 10th annual Heart & Sole 5 Kilometer Run through the streets of Plainview on Sunday morning, July 22.
Ten year old Oliver took third place honors in the 12 and Under Age Group, with a finishing time of 27 minutes 22 seconds. Mom Karen earned the third place award in the women’s 35-39 age group, with a time of 21:22.
The Run started and finished at the Plainview-Old Bethpage Middle School. A record smashing field of 541 runners and walkers completed the Run as, in its tenth year, the Heart & Sole Run has clearly become one of the more important summer road races in Nassau County.
A big thank you to Race Directors Ric & Kathy DiVeglio of the host Greater Long Island Running Club, whose continuing efforts have made the incredible success of this race possible.
