Tot 686 In the accompanying 5K – part of the BadAssHalf (10 + 3.1), Scott did a 19:03, and Katya 28:32 Anyone else? Eric Jacobsen, Katya Divari, and Mike Bower were the ONLY RETURNEES from the 18 who were here in 2017! Seven of the 17 from 2018 were back this year. Five of the 12 from last year were back this year. Want to get a laugh from Joe Koziol? Ask him if he does more than 5 minutes of stretching in the morning once a week.
GP points will come later…Did I miss anyone? If so, tell me in a comment below: “FTLY” means Faster Than Last Year here.

Paddy Kelly 5 Miler

Sunday, 11 a.m., Feb. 9, 2020, Brockton (half in Avon) around D.W.Field Park’s pond (“30 Acre Pond”); ~30, no wind, sunny, fairly flat course (only 3-4 shallow upgrades); trophies 3 deep, usual age groups; pasta and one free beer afterwards. The Colonial Runners did a great job of putting this on! Results by Racewire.com. Photos by not only Racewire at the finish (prob by tomorrow), but also by Bob Cargill mostly indoors (plus videos) and others of all eight of us by our own Ted Tyler at around the 4-mile mark (prob by tomorrow too).

295 Tot (311 last year)
Notes:
Friday was Darlene‘s birthday! What a nice way (see award above) to celebrate! (A TROPHY for her placing in her age group) And brought her sister from Chicago along for racing company! Abby McCabe survived her hike up Mt. Monadnock yesterday (!) where it was “beautiful, cold, icy, windy” and worried a little today (29 degrees) about whether she had enough on – but PLACED 2nd (see above). John Joyce had had a calf injury in Dec., and planned to “go light” – but look how he did! A 72.40% WAVA!! Bob Cargill had run the day before a training run of 9 1/4 miles in 11:33’s. “I’m training for a marathon (Boston),” he explained! Amy Pearl expected nothing before the race, but did nice 10:11’s! Sue Richardson dieted away the equivalent of a men’s shotput (you look it up – the weight) and improved her 2-years-ago 5K pace (New Year’s) by 42 seconds! Jim Finn, who now sports a GFRC shirt, was only 0:14 off his 2-years-ago time here.
Bob Cargill was only 0:06 off his pace of 3 years ago here (he’s supposed to slow by 4 seconds a year!) Yours Truly was only 9:29 slower – that’s MINUTES – than only 3 years ago here. Woulda been even slower if not for hearing, “Go Joe!!” from Abby just after going by her cheering us on. Joe Koziol has been pouring on the training lately so as to be ready for the Hyannis 10K or its half marathon in 2 weeks. He might even do the OFTM (10 mi) next Sunday.

11th Annual Resolution Run 5K to Kick Cancer

Saturday, Jan. 11, 2020, 11:00 a.m., Lexington H.S. Field House;
~63 degrees, sunny, only a medium-to-faint breeze; postrace food offerings rivaled those of almost any wedding reception. Racewire has chiptime results & (soon) photos; course flat the first 2 miles, then a gently rolling 3/8 mile, then flat & gently downhill to a double-dogleg, 100-yard finish. course measured 3.14 miles on at least one GPS watch (which can often overstate a 5K distance by 0.02).
(For the sake of clarity, everyone’s GRAND PRIX points will later be at bottom of this listing).

10th Annual Jingle Bell 2 Mi.


December 8, 2019, Natick H.S., 10 a.m., 19 degrees, no wind, sunny; 2-mile course, fairly flat (two noticeable 1/8th mile upgrades, which were somewhat offset by the 1.8-mile course length, so, paces “a tad fast” – but only a tad, as they, as mentioned above, somewhat offset the two upgrades. (Maybe added 15-30 seconds a mile to your pace?) Awards (12-oz mugs) 1 deep: Phyllis Lowry 1/28 F5059, Darlene Dearden 1 F4049; Carol Leiter, Tom Abbott, Ted Tyler also took their age groups;
Bob Mayer, John Joyce, Bruce Hardy, Abby McCabe, Chad MacDonald, Mary Tyler 2nd or 3rd in their age groups; generous raffle made up for lack of awards depth (Bob Cargill won something good). Postrace goodies: muffins, bananas, and great hot chocolate from Wegman’s. Race directed by the estimable Colleen Phelps.

Just able to get this done during Buffalo game (Ravens seemed to score more when I wasn’t watching – but is this good? Kind of wanted Buffalo to win….[they didn’t, nor did Patriots, thanks to refs]) Before race, Arnie Pollinger arrived without his number to his horror – so he bombed home (without getting a speeding tkt) and got back just in time to join the back of the crowded pack. Bob Cargill WON a pair of raffle tickets to a Celtics game against…which team? Yours Truly was handed a whole tray of Wegman’s muffins to take home by the volunteers. Any other stories?
