This week, we ran the 3 Mile Roxbury Race for Open Space at the Roxbury Pond. Winners were "I know that we are young, And I know that you may love me, But I just can't be with you like this anymore" Alejandro Abella in 17:16 and Mary Schafer in 21:33.
There was a Norris, not Chuck, incognito. Though if you were roundhouse kicked sometime during the race, you already know this. Sock fashion impressive on both Eric and Kateri. Yet another But(ler)-less race this week. We're beginning to wonder if Paul found someone else more willing to bring him coffee. Great to see an expanded team LoSacco out this week. Perhaps they will challenge the McCulloughs for world domination? Welcome back to Kim, who has been away for a year with plantar facitis. Welcome back to Steve, who is getting back to running now that he is adjusting to being a parent. (FYI: his offspring has 80s rocker worthy hair.) Thanks, Jeff, for sharing, "I hate wearing pants." We're wondering what Marissa thinks of this? Also, the knee socks are nice. Combine them with a bandana, knee tape, and a breathe right strip and you've got a Vander-fecta. And since we're speaking of Brian, what's with the cap? Its not even cold yet! We think you're just showing off your snappy, all-season wardrobe. Unconfirmed rumor that the Abrahams welcomed Baby #2 this past week. Can anyone confirm/deny? Also, we have heard from a former student that Mike can talk without stretching, though s/he admits to not paying very close attention during most of high school.
Congratulations to everyone who ran the King of the Hill, the Southbury Classic, and any of the many other races going on this week.
Next week, we honor Ed Sandifer with the annual Roxbury Handicap 2.4 mile race. See you then! Also, if you haven't seen already, Ed is being inducted into the Western New England Hall of Fame. Read about him here: http://www.masslive.com/sports/index.ssf/2011/09/ed_sandifer_to_be_inducted_int.html
Finally, the Roxbury Half Marathon is scheduled for November 12. We will need about 15 volunteers to help with registration, water stops, and as course marshals. If you would like to volunteer, please email, FB, or talk to Mary. (ubergirl17 at yahoo dot com) Thanks, Dirk, for being the first to volunteer!
