14 Consecutive Age Records for Blanchard!

     There was nary a snowflake in sight at this season's first Snowstorm Classic as temperatures broke the record 65 degrees set way back in 1908. Not many runners were heard to complain, however, as gloves, hats, and tights were all tossed aside in favor of singlets and shorts. A nice change for December in New England.
     Taking advantage of the California like weather, Carlos Rivera matched strides with fellow Harrier Ron Lombardi before pulling away to a 16:35 victory. Ron took second in 16:44 followed by the come back kid Brent Coon who crossed in 17:51 with flashes of that familiar smooth stride. Tim Brown took master honors in 18:43 over Bob Austin (19:23) and Kevin Leach (19:32), a Red Clover Rover from Vermont. Ramon Alicea was the first senior in 19:45 edging GSH teammates Art Roberts (19:58) and Neal Lamberton (21:16).
     Sue Haryasz outran the women's field in 19:44, closely followed by Suzanne Custer (19:54) and Carol L'Esperance (20:33). Sue also garnered master's honors while Carol was first senior. The two speedsters jointly hold the overall course record for women of 17:36.
     Two new age records were set, one for the men and one for the women. Carol broke the record for 52 year old women of 21:12 held by CMS's Mary Ryczek, while Doug Blanchard aka "the Champ" ran 25:42 to erase the 28:28 record for 76 year old men set by Robert Knowlton seven years ago. Doug now has an unprecedented 14 consecutive age records on the 5K course, all the records from age 63 to age 76!. We don't call him the Champ for nothing!
