Roxbury Races Report
Spring seems to have sprung and we celebrated by running up Hemlock (obviously). Winners, for the second week in a row, were Chris Scannell in 21:45 and Theresa Krebs in 25:08. We were confronted with an interesting obstacle at bottom of Hemlock as it was apparently tree trimming day in Roxbury. Bob assures everyone that had he known this was going on, he would have warned us. Since there were no reported injuries, we'll count this week as more of a cross country course than road running. Ali would like everyone to know that Leah is training in secret, clearly the only way to explain how she has gotten so fast, so fast. Let's not forget shoe-based rockets and/or outright trickery.
Dan rearranged his schedule to be at Roxbury this week, and will continue rearranging as is his goal to attend every race this year. This is before he's gotten addicted to points, people! Come summer, he will be a force in the points standings. Jeff has made contact and apparently it is not something we said, rather, scoring over 1,000 points two seasons in a row has gotten, well, tiresome. In an effort to challenge himself, and do more weather-appropriate shirtless running, Jeff is skipping the first couple weeks/months of the Roxbury season.
Congratulations to everyone who ran the Polar Bear and NYC Half Marathon on Sunday! From the looks of it, both seem to have gone off without incident.
For those of you who have asked, "How do I get mentioned in the prestigious Roxbury Race Report?" its easy. Just send your story/gossip/suspicions to ubergirl17 at yahoo dot com and watch this space. Next week we run the 3.7 mile South Street/Ranney Hill combo. See you there!
