Without further ado, the race report. Bruce Goulart and Mary Schafer won the first ever Roxbury 10 yard dash in 2.2 and 2.4 seconds, respectively. The Dash was immediately followed by the 5-mile purgatory that is Squire road in summertime for the Bill Burley Mid-summer Championship. The race was won by Desmond O'Grady in 29:16 with Mary Schafer leading the women's side in 37:46.
Thanks to all the finish line helpers, most importantly this reporter's in-laws, Doug and Joy. Mark almost ran the Huntington State Park Trail race, but was afraid of losing his coveted position in the Roxbury points series. Good man, good decision. Welcome back, Chuck and Kim, good to see you again. Chuck notes he's a little beat up from all the wakeboarding he's been doing. Awwwww, bummer, you're staying cool and having fun.
Congratulations to Eric who puked and rallied to finish the race. No, he wasn't kidding at the finish line. Eye Candy Jeff says that he couldn't have won, even had he tackled everyone in front of him. Cynthia is being declawed this week. We wish her a speedy recovery. Also on the DL, Jeanne, who is recovering from a stress fracture.
Thanks to race directors Bob Lewis and Scott Benjamin for an excellent awards and Hall of Fame presentation. And thanks to Rockin' Rob for, well, rockin'. Next week we do it again, only in reverse. Bring your best Paul or Phil (Sherwen and Liggett) impersonation and outrageous description of the race. "He appears in great difficulty, wearing a mask of pain . . . "
