Marmaro master of Fall Fling

By Sharon Robb
STAFF WRITER
Posted September 20 2004

Paul Marmaro of Delray Beach enjoyed his new masters status, winning Sunday's Fall Fling Over The Hill 5K Sunday at Tradewinds Park in Coconut Creek.

Marmaro celebrated his 40th birthday and new age group by topping a field of runners 40 and over in 16 minutes and 58 seconds for 3.1 miles.

The fitness instructor said he was surprised by the outcome since he had not begun serious fall training. The last time he ran a 5:28 mile pace was in May at the Disney Half-Ironman.

Tim Nicholls, 44, of Hollywood was second in 17:54. His wife, Mary, 40, won the women's race in 20:29. North Broward Prep cross country coach Gary Bloome, 50, of Boca Raton was third in 18:02.

The Over The Hill Gang field was given a five-minute head start over runners 39 and under in the Young and the Restless 5K, won by Jimmy Villalobos, 34, of Fort Lauderdale in 16:06 and Tracey Bunce, 31, of Hollywood in 19:00.

Marmaro said he was motivated to pick up the pace when he saw the younger runners catching up at the turnaround.

"To run in the 16s without training I am very happy with," said Marmaro, who plans to run the Nov. 14 Marathon of the Palm Beaches and Walt Disney World Marathon in January.

"I didn't push the pace. I just went out to see how my body would react to a 5K without training. It's really encouraging. I can't wait to start training."

Marmaro isn't really out of shape. He trains full time with his clients and had been training for triathlons. He said he intends to dispute the "old age" theory.

"I would like to disprove this myth that age dictates that the body is going to slow down when you get older," Marmaro said. "It's made me stronger mentally and physically. I don't quite get the age thing. Age has nothing to do with racing fast.

"I plan on running faster when I start training. That's the goal, to get back into racing shape and see what this body can do at the old age of 40.
