Preliminary Results - We encountered some difficulties compiling the results.
If your result is missing or in error, please let us know! Send an e-mail to chris (at) beatfrequencies (dot) com. We'll wait a while before updating the season standings to give this week's results a chance to get finalized.
A couple people have written in with corrections - Thank You! We still are missing some pieces to the puzzle - We don't know what place Peter Stasz finished in, and we don't know who finished in places 13, 51 - 55.
Welcome to Roxbury, our world is not flat. This week we tackled what is our most challenging and perhaps our signature race, the mighty 11.2 mile Botsford Hill. It was a beautiful day for running, starting chilly but warming along the way. Fifty eight brave souls crossed the line and each with a story of pain, overheating, but ultimately glory. This week's winner, Leigh Sorrells, finished in 71:45 grasping victory by a mere 6 seconds. The women's winner, Betsy Mainiero, finished in 86:40.
At the front of the pack, Jeff ran a Judd's Bridge before the race (insert eye roll here) while Chuck started at the back, overdressed, and was spotted running hours after the finish. Brian's favorite Roxbury race is Botsford Hill and, ps, he has stopped aging. Lou and Jeff were overheard comparing recipes for their treasures from the seafood van on 202. Nice work, Nate. We welcomed back Chris and Tom who allegedly have taken to mountain biking--at night. Eric, do your quads a favor and take a rest day. Or two. The pain you're feeling is not a signal for your PT to work harder.
Welcome to the Masopust sisters who enjoyed their first ever Roxbury race. Mario brought the strongest finish, with determination in his soul and fire in his eyes. Sue delivered the most spectacularly dramatic Roxbury finish, possibly ever, and we are particularly pleased to see her up and running again. This was despite Paul's best attempts at drama-rama.
Thanks to Charlie and his always fantastic water/beer/donut/party stop. The local dog especially enjoyed the copy of "Run, Spot, Run" which he grabbed in his teeth and ran away with. Seriously. The dog was finally picked up by his worried owners. No word on the condition of the book. And thanks to Sharon for her extra help with the race course.
In a separate note, the New Milford Spectrum captured laurels of its own. Congratulations, Spectrum! We hope there was a prize for headlines.
We look forward to seeing everyone next week for a comparatively mellow Hemlock loop. See you then!
