She's a Brig----house
Mighty might just lettin' it all hang out
She's a Brig----house
The lady's stacked and that's a fact,
ain't holding nothing back.

Sounds like a song from way back....but anyways..3 in a row and Nicole Brighouse nows owns the Charles River Ramble, at least for one more week .... cause next week we may see the return of the former Hyannis Marathon winner-Katie Griffith-Calendar who will put Nicole to the test!!!

Even so, she is a pretty good champion...and new SSAC member along with hubs-David, who mingles with the crowd has a beer and enjoys the BBQ...what more can you ask for in a champion!!

We could call this the "Somerville Homie Run"...tonight with many Somerville natives as well as Somerville Barney's joining us on the road...nice feelin' when the friends come to visit:>)

Huge time on the Charles River next Thursday night...when we will be running the first of many double loops this spring & summer with this one being dubbed the Charles River Ramble "Dupe Double Loop" 5.2 Miler, as well as saluting as a good a supporter as a sports organization could have...Jimmy DuPont ...Don't forget to wear orange???
