Jules and Harper win last V.I. Pace Runners event of the year… 

12-19-04--St. Croix, Virgin Islands--As a top long distance runner in the Virgin Islands for many years, George Jules reached a point where he lost the motivation to continue with the hard training required to stay at the top.  In October 16 year old Juan Robles beat Jules in the CoastWeeks Beach Relay where they were matched together in the first two mile leg.  The motivation would come from that race, the urge to get back into the game.  So it was at Cane Bay with the Davis Bay mountains and the Hamm’s Bluff light house as the back drop Jules and Robles were together stride for stride on the course that traces the water’s edge the entire route.  Between the 2 and 3 three mile points Robles dropped off the pace and the more experienced Jules took advantage and open the gap to the finish and won with a time  27 minutes and 58 seconds.  Robles was second in 29:54; 14 year-old Hansel Estepan wad third in 30:27; Leopold Federicks fourth in 31:24 and Richard Jean Pierre fifth in 32:31.   

Theresa Harper has won every V.I.Pace Runners race on the current calendar (including a tie for first in the Cane Bay 5 Road Race).  She took first place on Saturday without challenge with a time of 35:03. Her next race is the 3rd St. Croix Millennium Marathon on New Year’s Day.  With a victory in that race she will be the top local woman from the mile to the marathon.  Tish Dusich, out of training for a while still managed to take second place in 38:49; Tesha Distad was third in 39:50; Cathy Prince was fourth in 50:33 and Janet Jean Pierre was fifth in 55:43.
