Marsh Post Charles River Ramble Duathlon & 2.6 Miler

Cambridge, MA, June 20, 2002

Overall Results

Hosted by the Somerville Striders

Somerville Striders, Somerville Road Runners, Somerville Swim Team, 
Somerville Fire Department Racing Team..I am getting so confused...but it is 
nice to see the folks from the various Somerville Fiefdoms tasting something 
different outside of Somerville..every so often..really one big happy family 
havin' fun!!

Elder statesman, Jack Curtin soon to be 71 years old..boldly stated in May he would get back into the 25 minute range by hook or by crook after a winter in Florida sippin' good Jameson whiskey and walking his dog..he did tonight with no time to spare since he goes under the knife this week to fix a real male nag of an injury...and he may not get back on the roads for a wee bit!!

The 1st ever Charles River Ramble Duathlon went off like it should..loads of fun for the participants and the race director and his very able crew of riff-raff..Jerry Bailey went into the last run transition in 4th place and quicker than the Race Director can say "yes" after being asked if he wants a beer, went onto win the men's side of the Charles River....Jerry is the track coach at Malden Catholic..the RD's alma mater(sp)-so if your kid's are getting coached by Jerry they are in good hands.. and on the ladies side of the Charles River was Gretch Wilson who looks so strong I think she could throw you over to the men's side of the Charles River went and whupped all the rest of the lovely ladies tonight...only one team tonight..but a classy one at that..any teams a classy one with Jimmy Sweeney on it..including Kate Maul..who along with Jimmy & Amanda Whittemore brought along their babies makin' it a real family night..on the Charles River :>)
