Overall Results

Hosted by the Somerville Striders Athletic Club

 Not only is it a place "where everyone know's your name" but it's also a 
place where you wanna bring your kid's and grandchildren while you go for a 
run and then relax post race...Charlie LaRosa and the Mrs. were doing the 
granny thing tonight...but Charlie also had to get his run in...and where 
else can you do both and feel comfortable on a Thursday Night but at the VFW 
Logan Post...even Jimmy Whittemore agreed cause he brought down little Elisa 
along with the little lady, Amanda tonight..running and family--that's what 
it's all about except..... 

.....if your Ken McWilliams of Kilkenny, Eire and your gunning for your first win ever at a road race and you gothave a native German breathing down your back thinking the same bloody "phony Chi" up front tonight...blood and guts and not just on the XO side of the fence either...Fair Maiden Michelle McAndrew had to beat off a persistent Pat Galey in the early stages of the race and then breezed home with the win when Pat realized the beer wasn't any colder if she came in 1st or 2nd....thats how we like our women down at the VFW Logan Post...down and dirty and practical:>)
