Valentines Day Romp

by by Ken Gartner

Most husbands were busy buying flowers or preparing to take their wives out for romantic dinners this past Friday on Valentines Day. However, six sorry poor excuses for husbands, instead chose to run through the 20 degree dark night over ice laden roads. Apparently the weekly Coffee-O-Fiver was more important then normal Valentines Day type festivities. Afterwards some did rush home to their spouses (empty handed of course), while others instead opted to stop off for a cold one with the boys before heading on home. Jeff List showed up with a fancy pair of special ice cleats this week. They worked wonders over the icy stretches, where he streaked ahead to large leads but in the end he had to settle for second place. Jack Carrol and Bob Richards took third and fourth. Mike Garry turned in one of his slowest efforts ever, and still ended up with one of his highest finishes. The North Falmouth nail pounder pulled up lame half way through the run and ended up limping back home to the finish. Courtney Bird rounded out the menıs field, while Carolyn Bird ran uncontested to her second womenıs victory in a row. The walkerıs field increased to three walkers this week. Barbara and Don Lunn completed a romantic moon-lit stroll together. Leslie Fotiu walked early on a solo jaunt through town. The Coffee-O-Five is a weekly five mile and 2.4 mile walk, which is held every week from Town Hall Square in Falmouth. There is no entry fee for this self timed event and all runners and welcome are welcome to participate. Steaming hot cocoa is generously supplied afterwards by, Coffee Obsession, the event sponsor.
