Webb Sets New Coffee-O-Five Record

by by Ken Gartner

It was still snowing and there was a foot of snow on the ground when the Coffee-O-Five runners lined up Friday night for the five mile run. Just six runners and one walker showed up and the finishing times were all very slow. Courtney and Carolyn Bird slogged through the course earlier in the day and made it through unscathed. Not all were that fortunate this week. Jeff List started out with snowshoes, but quickly ditched them after less then half a mile. Mr. List ended up taking two hard spills on the slick surface before loping into Town Hall Square for a second place finish. Dann Webb, who completed the Key West Half Marathon just two weeks previous, found the snow a bit of a challenge. He took three spills during the course of the run, which is a new Coffee-O record. Paul Hartel had a couple of close calls but made it through the course without hitting the ground. Pat Vasconcellos forgot her coat so Donn Lunn was left to do the walk solo. It took the determined Waquoit carpenter so long to forage through the elements that a rescue party was sent out from the Quarterdeck to search for him. He was found on Main Street huffing and puffing as he plodded through the snow towards the finish. The Coffee-O-Five is a weekly five mile run and 2.4 mile walk which is held every Friday night 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 invited to participate. Reflective running vests are required through the winter.
