On a morning when it was truly a better idea to stay in bed, many of us did. The weather saved its very worst until 8:27, unleashing a downpour that outright mocked our jackets, hats, and plastic ponchos. However, this gave race director Scott the opportunity to show off his weather clairvoyance, "Let's give it a few minutes," he said, as we huddled in the pavilion. Sure enough, within minutes, the rain had slowed and we were off the line to run the 3.52 mile Hemlock course, up the hill. Good call, Scott. Winners this week were Stosh Davis in 21:22 and on the women's side, Baerbel LoSacco in 25:34.
We love the way Stosh Pere welcomes us the to finish line with sunglasses and a very, very small dog. It feels so very celebutante. Brian brought out his ever popular juice box costume/poncho, which while of dubious fashion is certainly a look. Between Krystal and Mary, they had an ideally matched outfit. Just not independently. "Sheldon is such a chicken!" said Janet, noting the drubbing she gave him last week. Congratulations to John and his wife who are celebrating anniversary #34 this week! Jim sent photos from Greece--the Acropolis hasn't collapsed, yet. Paul was back again for a second week and couldn't stop talking about the Harry But-ler Half Marathon.
Speaking of, the Half Marathon, whatever we call it, will be mid-November. There are lots of opportunities to volunteer and it would be awesome to have the race fully supported by the Roxbury regulars.
Next week is the iconic 11 mile Botsford Hill race! See you there!
HAPPY 3 MONTHS to Steve's daughter, Ripley
