After a really aggressive Scott "All About the Benjamin" Challenge, it was a relief to run the comparatively mild High Bridge 4.2 miler this week. The humidity was slightly less frightful and at least we had shade most of the way versus last week, so the outright brutality was less but that didn't help anyone go faster up South Street
Winners this week were John Perrino in 26:55 and Alana Levy in 29:02.
Bob finished in front of Paul, just by looking younger this week. Tricky. Shaina finished further back than she is accustomed after being undoubtedly tricked into a two hour "warm up" by Brian. "I felt like dying before the race even started, and then he tried to convince me that a weirldly polka-dotted top was the peak of fashion," commented Shaina. Yes, Brian IS trying to steal your Roxbury points. However, dots are very in for fall, so you can rest assured that he will not lead you astray if you need wardrobe advice. Harry is back to running again as his knee is starting to feel better. Rosie took him out for a 2 mile run. We suspect that this is her way of hinting that its time for him to find something else to do on Saturday mornings other than putter around the house. Thanks to Russ who was master of the start and finish line this week. We hope you feel better soon.
Congratulations to our newest Ironman, Sheldon! What we're really wondering is 1. did he wear armwarmers? and 2. was he mocked for them? Welcome to our newest Roxbury residents, Janet and Ross! Speaking of tricky, Andrew is not above tricks. Beware, runners.
Next week, the 3.7 mile Ranney Chalybes course. See you then!
