Weather Clears for Friday the Thirteenth Coffee O

by by Ken Gartner

For the first time in weeks, it was a good-weather-running night for the Coffee-O-Five. The streets were free of snow, and there was no wind or rain. It was Friday the thirteenth, but that didn't deter 22 un-superstitious runners and a half a dozen walkers. Many runners paired up in groups of two or three this week. Jeff Fumarola finished his first Coffee-O-Five in over two months. The Cape's fastest bartender didn't lose much speed in hiatus, as he teamed up with Mike Norton to finish in a tie for second with a time of 31 minutes flat. Steve Hamel, Terry Souza, and Pete Landry all raced in together in just over 35 minutes to tie for fourth. Jeff Hamilton held on as well for most of the way, and he finished his first Friday night run since injuring his knee. Stace Beaulieu was the first woman this week as she bested Liz Waldman by less than a minute. Ms. Waldman and her husband, Rich, both successfully finished the Dublin Marathon earlier this fall. Joanne Corsano edged Judi Keller for third. Laurie Fife rounded out the top five for the woman. It was Ms. Fife's first Friday nighter in a couple of months. The Coffee-O-Five is a weekly five-mile run and a 2.4-mile walk, which is held every Friday night at 5:30 from Town Hall Square in Falmouth. There is no entry fee for this self-timed event and all runners and walkers are invited to participate. Reflective clothing of some sort is required through the winter.
