Falmouth, MA, December 27, 2002

Twenty total for last Coffee O of the year

by By Ken Gartner

It was a perfect night for a run and 16 runners and 4 walkers took part in the last Coffee-O-Five of the year. Eva Tharp of Andover, Connecticut was the first woman across the line. She finished with a time of 42:42. While many of the regulars have a hard time driving across town to make the 5:30 start on time, Ms. Tharp drove all the way from her home in Connecticut just to take in the run. She is in the midst of running 8 races in 9 days, scattered throughout New England. After finishing her fine run, she stopped long enough to swill a cup or two of steaming hot chocolate, and then jumped in her jeep and set off for her three-hour ride back home. Next up on her tough schedule is a race in Springfield the following day. Steve Hamel made the long mile and a half trek from his house in Falmouth Heights to participate and he ran down Brian Nelson to take second over-all. Bob Crowley made one of his rare appearances and finished a strong fourth, just a couple of minutes ahead of Paul Hartel. Liz Waldman was the second woman across the line, just 30 seconds out of first place. Karin Lebherz-Smith and Lisa LeBlanc of Naples, Florida ran together in a tie for third. Judi Keller rounded out the top five for the women. The Coffee-O-Five is a weekly five mile run and 2.4 mile walk which is held every Friday night at 5:30 from Town Hall Square in Falmouth. There is no registration required for this self-timed event and all runners and walkers are welcome to participate and usher in the new year at next Friday's run. Reflective clothing is required through the winter.
