Huge shout-out to Ed Sandifer who made a long-awaited return to the Roxbury Races! He was nearly unrecognizable in pale blue Roxbury Race sweatshirt and subtle navy blue shorts. Fear not, the yellow tights are ready for their triumphant comeback, perhaps in the fall for the Ed Sandifer Race? (Yes, start preparing your outfits now www.runningfunky.com) Ed ran a loop of the track in a new Sandifierian PR with a posse of friends and fans. Overheard: "The fastest loops I've ever run!" and "This is the only time I've even been able to keep up with Ed!" A gigantic thank you to Terri, aka Mrs. Sandifer, for bringing Ed to Roxbury. We were all delighted to meet her and look forward to seeing her, and Ed, again soon.
As for the race, we tackled Ranney from the east for a 3.7 mile loop. Desmond O'Grady was the big winner with a time of 20:17 while Mary Schafer was first on the women's side in 26:33. It was a But(ler)-free Saturday as Paul was off lounging on a beach. We welcomed who we believe to be the New Milford track team, so Paul, good luck getting those points back. Lou, this is an intervention: we're rounding up and you're 50. Martin went totally disco with iridescent swishy pants, paired nicely with his fluorescent gloves. "Better to look good than to feel good!" BooBoo, we're still searching for a new nickname. "Wicket" and "John" have both been discarded but suggestions are welcome. Next week we run the precipitous Chalybes Hill, a quick 2.4 miler in consideration of everyone running Boston. So who's going to Beantown? Please email Mary or post on FB so that we can stalk your results next Monday.
Race Director Bob Lewis raised an interesting question this week: which is worse, the Botsford 11 miler or the Danbury Half? Discuss.

Brian did his best cheerleading at mile 4 in a very snappy matched track suit. Larry "Call me Chris anytime" was spotted lurking around the finish line with his violin having played at "Kenny Rogers' First 50 Years" Saturday night (watch for it on cable soon) and at church on Sunday morning (not likely on cable). Sharon, we really hope there was a piece of pizza left for you. And, if not, you at least got a doughnut on the way home.
