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?
