Legs of a gazelle, mid section of a water buffalo, neck of a muscle bound gorilla and the brains of a cunning leopard....put them all together and you have "Fast Freddie" Kirk of Woburn, Massachusetts.....he no longer grabs the anchor hand-offs like he used to in the 400M Relay's at the Millrose Games..but he still cuts a mean stride the thru the streets of Somerville on Thursday nights whenever he is not tending to family duties or workin' the numbers and I don't mean the street number:>)

Tonight, "Fast Freddie" ran a pretty speedy 23:36 for 5.15Km - not up there with the SSAC A-Team that is slowly developing...but not bad for a 40+ 6'5" 250lbs+ kinda guy who can if he had to teach the developing SSAC A-Team a thing or two!!


And speakin' about "not bad"...Catherine Carney who did not run??? but did pop in for a few...minutes not beers..brought down some brownies for the crowd that were the rave of the evening.....over an inch thick--we pulled out a tape measure to check and you did not even need a glass of milk to get em' down..they were that good!! If ya can find a gal that can make brownies like Catherine Carney can you keep em' - just one humble man's opinion!


Not that you would could one with all the e-mails they get from the Big Fella..but just in case...the SSAC heads down to the Marsh Post as of May 5th and they are family friendly nights- but do get the remaining April D.A.V. Races in Somerville on your running calendar!!
