Coffee Obsession Friday Night 5
Falmouth, MA, June 14, 2002
Holmgren Wins 2nd Straight, Faloutico churns out a PR
The threat of rain and the ominous skies may have scared some
runners away this week, but 30 hearty soles still crossed the line in
this weeks Coffee-O-Five. They were joined by four hard core walkers.
Barbara and Don Lunn, along with Russ and Joan Pelletier donned foul

Fredrikson of Newton grabbed third in his first ever Coffee-O-Five.
Steve Hamel nabbed fourth and Chris Sherwood garnered his first top five
finish at the Coffee-O-Five with a time of just under 35 minutes. Peter
Noonan returned to the event after a long absence and picked up just

fastest Coffee-O time in quite a while, as he toured the course at 7
minute per mile pace.
Lynn Holmgren made it two wins in a row as she led the women with a

Sharon Napier took third. Elizabeth Sherman and Linda Dalton rounded
out the top five.
