Overall Results

Hosted by the Somerville Striders Athletic Club

The Great One from Ethiopia showed up tonight to give a lesson in river 
running.....Tesfeye Bekele smoked the 1st 2.6 miles in record course 
time..sub 14 minutes and then left 2nd place finisher Finbar Kirwin in the 
dust and I mean dust...100 degree weather created the dust as well as the 
smoke from Tesfeye's sneakers...loads of ancient Khoury's runners on-hand 
tonight to keep things cool for Papa Clyde...Marie Kemp being one who 
remembers when the cold beer was only a few schillings more than the Kenyan 
Fund fee...thats ancient:>)...

Bundles of competetion, fun running and camraderie tonight....loads of support for the American Legion Marsh Post....last one to leave locked the door at 1AM..
