Norton Dusts Four Fleet Footed Fifty Year Olds (but can't say it fast)

by by Ken Gartner

Twenty runners and another seven walkers took part in this weekıs Coffee-O-Five. Mike Norton notched his second win in a row, and his time of 29:19 was the fastest time chalked up so far in 2003. Steve Hamel finished third and led a quartet of fleet-footed fifty year olds across the line. John Martin took fourth in his Coffee-O-Five debut and Jack Carroll edged Paul Hartel for fifth. Pete Landry, who was sidelined for over two months with sore-foot-syndrome, crossed the line in just over 40 minutes. Steve Pepe journeyed down from Bedford, Massachusetts to compete in the event for his first time. Mr. Martin is a co-founder of the weekly Hyannis five-miler, which was started over 15 years ago. The Coffee-O-Five was modeled after this event. Mr. Martin, who once got up at the crack of dawn and drove to Pinkham Notch to compete in the grueling Mount Washington Road Race on the wrong day, arrived at Town Hall Square on the right night. Stace Beaulieu won the womenıs race with a time of 4 tics under 40 minutes. Kris Tholke edged Liz Waldman for second and Judi Keller edged Madeleine Marken for fourth. Carolyn Bird rounded out the womenıs field. The Hawk flew into town in time for the start but left his running shoes at home in Litchfield, Connecticut. The Coffee-O-Five is a weekly five mile run and 2.4 mile walk which 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 and walkers are welcome to participate.
