Winter Thaw for Coffee O Fivers

by by Ken Gartner

It was a balmy 38 degrees this Friday and to the Coffee-O-Five runners and walkers it felt like a heat wave. This week the runners were able to run in just one sweatshirt, instead of two or three, and one set of light gloves sufficed to keep their hands warm, instead of two per hand. People actually stayed around this week to talk and swill the hot cocoa supplied by Coffee Obsession, instead of diving into their cars after crossing the finish and speeding straight home to their hot showers. Seventeen runners and another four walkers enjoyed the late January thaw. Liz Waldman garnered her first Coffee-O-Five win and also out-legged her husband, Rich, for the first time in quite a while. The 55-year-old Irish speedster from Mashpee finished in just over 42 minutes. Judi Keller finished several minutes later to take second for the women. Madeleine Marken edged Carolyn Bird for third. Last weekıs winner, Michele Bianchini, settled for third this week in the menıs race. The native of Venice, Italy finished in 33:35. Jeff List trotted home in 36:25 to nab fourth and Chris Sherwood of North Falmouth took fifth in 37:11. For Mr. Sherwood it was his best finish in this prestigious event. Leslie Fotiu recruited Pat Vasconcellos to participate in the 2.4 mile walk and the two women altered the course so they could walk by at least 15 of the neighboring restaurants. They reportedly dashed off to dinner after the walk. Barbara and Don Lunn also loped through the walk this week. The Coffee O Five is a weekly five mile run and 2.4 mile walk from Town Hall Square in Falmouth. The free self-timed event starts at 5:30 every Friday night and all are welcome to participate.
