Points Leader Wins Race
Points leader Mike Abraham ended the Points Leader Jinx and finally won a race this year. He had only a small lead at the bottom of the big Chalybes hill when Nate Beatty came up beside him. Nate runs for New Milford High School. Abe coaches there. Among the runners at NMHS, only a few ever get to take the coach's scalp before they graduate, and Abe does his best to make this as difficult as possible. Abe woke up, turned on the jets and pulled away for a 16 second victory. Maybe next year, Nate.
Peg Molina won for the women, with Kyle Gancher just 24 seconds behind.
Some people think that the field this week, only 28, was reduced a bit by the 900 people who had run Moonlight the night before in New Milford. "But Captain, that is not logical" you say. Here's why. Roxbury is FREE. If you're not going to win, you might as well get beat by Mike Abraham and Peg Molina as get beat by a bunch of strangers. And if you can beat Mike and Peg, then you should run Roxbury because then you'll win the race. Unless you were going to win Moonlight anyway, in which case you should run Roxbury because that's where all your competition should be.
Just as well. We can't handle 900 runners, and most of them can't handle Roxbury.
Today's picture is another one of Web Guy's favorites, taken last fall. This week's winner Mike Abraham warming down with Danbury track coach Marty Ogden, in front of a beautiful autumn maple tree.
