We are the champions my friends

What a terrific way to start the Good Times Summer Series. We had a record turnout for a summer opener, the weather was perfect, the sides were off on the big top at Hookslides, the Red Sox defeated the Phillies 3-0 and the Celtic brought home their 17th NBA Championship. Can it get any better than this? These are truly Good Times!

Tonight's theme, or gimmick as my friend Jimmy Shelton calls it, was Temptation. Along the course we setup stations with the sole purpose of luring runners away and thus effecting their times. Sound demented? Well it is, but it was also a lot of fun!

We located our first temptation station just before the first mile. It had eight boxes measuring a foot square. One of the eight boxes contained $100. It was up to runners to decide whether they wanted to run two miles carrying a box with the hope of winning one-hundred bucks. At stake was an opportunity to win a Mylie PR medal, lose out on the chance of a divisional award and jeopardize overall standing points. Few of the top runners opted to take a box.

We located the second temptation station just beyond 2-miles. Here runners had to leave the course to collect an envelope that contained cash in denomination of one to ten dollars and gift certificates to Sully Ice Cream. In all there were twenty-five envelopes and all were taken. Again this small detour resulted in a small time penalty.

Finally as runners rounded by the water stop for the home stretch there was a mystery box. Runners were instructed before the race they could exchange their box for the mystery box, however the contents were unknown. Aisling O'Connor decided to do just that and she exchanged an empty box for one with a new Boston Marathon jacket courtesy of Michael Thompson.

Who Won?
In this type of event just about everyone is a winner, however the big winner of the day, besides the Sox and Celtics, was none other than our own announcer boy Dave LaBrode who correctly selected the box containing $100.

Oh, by the way, while all this temptation action was transpiring there was a heck of a footrace in progress. Dracut's Joe Donnelly, our 2007 springtime series' champion, led all men with a time of 17:10. Methuen's Christie Fox, our 2006 summertime series' champion, led all women with a time of 20:13. Christie has come close to winning her second title on numerous occasions, maybe this is her year.

Next week, June 24, is our Classic T-Shirt Nite 5K. This is always a lot of fun as folks show off their classics. We'll have special awards for oldest shirt (must have a date), furthest race away shirt, best home made shirt, most unique and a few surprise categories. So I hope you can join us. And as always, we can't promise you'll run a fast time, but we guarantee you'll have a Good Time at the Good Times Series.
