We had 12 RETURNEES from 2018 (we didn’t hold this last year),
11 from ’17, 9 from ’16, 13 from ’15, 9 from ’14, and 6 from 31 in ’13
FT’__” means Faster Than [2017 (’17) or 2018 (’18)] here by __:__
WAVA – the World Assoc. of Veteran Athletes’ % of world
record time for that exact age and distance. A 60-69% is
“locally competitive” and 70-79% is “regionally competitive”
More notes on who did what here: Let it be recorded that Jay Powell had to go 9.4 mph be fastest among us! Darlene Dearden and Abby McCabe did 8.05 & 8.32 mph…John Joyce is almost over his calf pull (“felt it only a little”), Abby McCabe, Darlene Dearden, Bob Mayer, John Joyce and Glenn Meister were the only ones of us who didn’t wear jackets in this. Abby we learned loves the cold. She’s hiked all the 48 4000-footers in NE, some in the winter! Glenn also hiked recently in cold wind, snow & ice. Abby, Andrea Leonard and Phyllis Lowry had done 2-3 Bowditch track workouts in February! Joe Koziol & Yours Truly did also, though it didn’t help their speed this day. This race made it Joe K’s fourth in a row – the PK 5 Miler, the OFTM (10 mi) and the Hyannis Half, all right before this. (We think he backed off his pace for this one!) Almost all of us wore jackets because of the wind & the temps. Jeff Hattem had done 13 miles right before this. Steve and Deb ran 14 miles beforehand; Deb’s foot is feeling better – going in the right direction! Steve served us some of his outstanding home brew at the Lowrys’, Andrea & Phyllis “saved themselves” for a 3 1/2-hour trail run the next day (mid-11’s pace); Esther Powell pushed Andrew in his 4-wheeler the whole way. Carol Leiter tried to squeeze the run into an overly busy day, but got there in time to do only one lap. If we’d known she’d been there, we’d have said, “Just do the 2nd lap & we’ll get your time!” Looking at all those photos (by Julie C) of the pub the Lowrys have put together over the years, with the hundreds of race bibs nailed to the rafters, and race ribbons hanging all over, and trophies (most very hard to win) on the shelves, is there any better runners’ pub anywhere?!

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.
