Before we talk running, we still need volunteers for the half marathon on November 12! Our water stops are taken care of, but we need people out on the course to make sure our visiting runners don't get lost. Please email/FB/talk to Mary or sign up on the FB page.
While the rest of Connecticut enjoyed the calm before the storm, we enjoyed the race before the storm. It was a surprisingly nice morning in light of the impending winter storm warning. We tackled the 3.95 mile Jeep Trail course, which was passable at race time but certainly is not now. Unofficial winners were Stosh Davis and Theresa Krebs. (This writer is not yet privy to official results.) We're pretty certain Stosh runs with a jet pack when he had vanished from everyone's view at the turn onto South Street. Perhaps he is James Bond in training instead of Meb in training?
Eric arrived in costume--as Brian! He had remarkably coordinated shirt, tights, beenie hat and sunglasses. Well played, Eric. To all the runners who took it easy in advance of Halloween runs on Sunday: suckers. We hope you slept in and ate candy instead.
Let's review: a t-shirt with arm warmers is a long sleeves shirt. (Ahem, Jeff.) Mark at least leaves the toes intact on his mitten/armwarmer tube socks. Speaking of, Mark was slightly disappointed with his second place finish but proudly showed off his drivers license. Happy birthday to barbel, who joined a new age group! Has Chris become a canine magnet? Just asking. In other Deming news, thanks to Larry for talking us through the race course with an unexpected dramatic flair.
Congratulations to Brian and Chris who completed the Marine Corps Marathon on Sunday. Likewise to John who finished the Cape Cod Marathon. Good luck to Dirk and Cindy both running marathons next weekend.Next week, we'll run the Jeep Trail again for the Bob Lewis mid-Autumn Challenge. Or another course, chosen by Bob, in the event the Jeep Trail is impassable.
