The Jet slips by The Keg in Stunning Victory

 

As 137 runners lined-up for the start of last night's Good Times Series it was apparent that the men's competition was going to be a good one. With local stud Eric "The Keg" Beauchesne in attendance along with Mark Mayall and Dave Quintal the race had the makings of our best competition yet. Meanwhile back at Hookslide Kelly's runner number 138 and current series' leader, Benjamin "The Jet" Ndaya, was lacing on his racing flats at a leisurely pace. "Ready - Set - Bang!" The race was off and The Jet was nowhere to be found.

All series' champions will receive a Mylie Plaque engraved with their division.

What transpired over the next 15-minutes and 36-seconds was truly amazing. Upon arriving at the start Benjamin realized the race had already started. What he didn't know was that he was already about three-tenths of a mile behind the leaders. No problem! Benjamin just strapped on the jets and blasted off towards the leaders.

Do you Believe in Miracles?
One-by-one The Jet began picking up places at a startling rate. "I couldn't believe how fast Benjamin passed me," commented local running guru and MC to the Valley Dave LaBrode. By two and half miles The Jet caught up to race leader Eric "The Keg" Beauchesne, but The Keg wasn't ready to relinquish the lead. Over the next half mile it was a flat out splint to the finish resulting in our closest race finish ever with "The Jet" (15:36) eking out a thrilling 2-second victory over "The Keg" (15:38). For The Jet it was eight Good Time races and eight Good Times victories.

Maynard's Mark Mayall rounded out the top three with an outstanding 15:49. This marked the first time that the top three finishers were all sub 16-minutes.

Lowell's Amanda Leahy topped all women runners with a 19:47 and a course PR. This was Amanda's first run on the Good Times course in two years. Rounding out the top three were series' leader Linda Quimby (20:44) of Middleton and Christie Fox (20:56) of Methuen.

In all we awarded 45 Mylies for setting course PRs. In addition to the course PRs we also awarded 56 prizes to runners who set a series PR. Master of Ceremonies Dave LaBrode along with GLRR club prez Glenn Steward were busy handing out prizes.

Next week race, The Last Call 5K, is the final race in the 2007 Good Time Series. Coincidently it also happens to be our 100th race in the series. To celebrate the momentous occasion the first 150 runners to pickup their number will receive a goodie bag. We'll also be awarding Myles O'Smiles plaques to our series' overall winners. So please consider joining us for the fun filled evening and, as always, "We can't promise you will run a fast time, but we do guarantee you will have a Good Time!."
