Good Weather Brings Out More Coffee O Fivers

by by Ken Gartner

The Coffee-O-Five runners finally got a good night to run and the field swelled to 30 total participants. Twenty people toed the line with running shoes, while another ten took part in the walk. It was the largest walking field of 2003. For the first time in weeks, the runners didnšt have to wade through deep snow or tiptoe over icy terrain. Mike Norton stormed home for the win, as his time of 30:24 outdistanced the field by over a minute. Jeff Fumarola made it to the start on time and the Capešs fastest bartender finished in a tie for second at just under 32 minutes. Thirty-eight was the lucky number of the night for Brian Nelson and Penny Christo, as the two came home with a time of 38:38. Paul Hartel trotted in fifth for the men with a time of 39 minutes and change. Ms. Christo was the first woman across the line. Kris Tholke crossed the line about five minutes later to take second for the women. Judi Keller edged Joanne Corsano for third with a time of 46:30. Jessica Smith-Rhorberg ran alongside her brother to take fifth for the women. The Coffee-O-Five is a weekly five-mile run that is held every week at 5:30 from Town Hall Square in Falmouth. There is no entry fee for this self-timed event and all runners are welcome to participate. Reflective running vests are required through the winter. A 2.4-mile walk is also held in conjunction with the run.
