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.

474 Tot.

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?

Did we luck out with the weather! Predicted rain and high winds never happened, except for a slight drizzle when we were warming up. Temps in the low 40’s – perfect! Great photos – and one video – of some of us finishing by Bob Gargill right after he himself finished. And Ted Tyler was also at the finish line to get all of us he could see, and then labeled each one by name, age and pace. Inside, Gerard Lowry very generously passed out good quality brews to every one of us he saw. The firefighters at the back of the room handed out more good brew to anyone who had a non-glass glass. Lots of great pastries and fruit too. Tim Campion did a great job directing this and calling out bib numbers for a great raffle that went on and on. Awards were only one-deep as usual, but unusual turkey figurine ones. Did anyone else get surprised by the no-horn start? I was by my car getting something, and saw the crowd already surging ACROSS the start line and up the street! Got boxed in right away, but good thing the sidewalk was clear! Found around 80 members so far – just in the Turkey Classic alone. Four more did other races that day, so they also got Grand Prix points.

BIGGSteps 5K Toward Cancer Prevention

November 17, 2019, Needham, MA, from St. Sebastian’s Sch., 10 a.m. start; gently, but constantly rolling course (no brobdingnagian hills) with 8 identifiable upgrades, with steep and short downhills. The course measured 3.14 miles on at least one watch (so, paces here are calculated on that 3.14 distance); Timing delayed because in 30-32-degree temps the finish line computer froze and times had to a day later be approximated by finish line photos. Results and finish line photos by RaceWire.com. Great food options at after finish indoors. But no medals handed out because of no official results available at the time.

Tot 285
Abby McCabe placed FIRST in her age group because she GUNNED IT down to the finish and won by 7 seconds! Erin McArdle, with no gloves on, missed taking 3rd in hers by only 28 seconds, and maybe a GFRC long-sleeved shirt would’ve made her faster?. Mike Bower’s GPS had the distance at 3.14 miles, a little long. But did Mike run ALL the tangents? Will look closely at the photos to see who was wearing the right amount of clothing – not too much – on this 30-33-degree day.
