Coffee Ho Ho Five
by by FTC
Eighteen runners toed the line and raced down clear snow-free roads in
this weekıs Coffee O Five. Leslie Fotiu regrouped the walkers after last
weekıs dismal walker turnout, and legged it out with five other willing
soles. Afterwards everyone gathered around the black Toyota pickup truck,
otherwise known as race headquarters, and swilled steaming Coffee O hot
cocoa, instead of ice cold water, for the first time of the year.
Ed Sweeney of the Woods Hole based ³232 Racing Team² led a trio of
three runners across the line this week. Mr. Sweeneyıs time of 31:27 was
one of his best Coffee O efforts of the year. Wendy Stafford was the first
woman with a time of just under 37 minutes. Stace Beaulieu finished a step
or two ahead of Ann Tarrant to take second 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 Town Hall Square in Falmouth. There is no entry
fee and all runners and walkers are invited to participate. Reflective
running gear is required in the winter and after the event, Coffee Obsession
supplies steaming hot cocoa to all participants.
There will be a special high noon running and walking of the event on
Friday December 26th, for those who have the day off or for those who can
run five miles in the time of their lunch break.
