Meager Turnout for First Coffee O of the Year

by by Ken Gartner

There was kind of a meager turnout for the first Coffee O Five of the year. Only seven hearty soles toed the line this week. With the strong northeast wind times were generally slow but everyone placed well. Several Coffee O veterans were able to walk away with their first ever top five finishes. Don Lunn, the walking man of Waquoit, returned to start a new walking streak. His six-month streak ended last week due to a family vacation, which foolishly included a Friday stay-over. Mr. Lunn was the lone walker and he cruised through the course solo in 40 minutes flat. Dan Webb battled through the elements in just over 41 minutes to notch a third place finish and second male over-all. Bob Richards and Brian McDevitt were third and fourth for the men and for both it was their first ever finish in the tough top five. Mr. McDevitt was using the run as a tune-up for a road race in Rhode Island the following morning. Mr. Webb and Mr. Richards were tuning up for the Weary Travelers Five miler in Bourne the following Sunday. Lynn Holmgren picked up some leg speed this fall, as she turned in a very impressive time of 36 minutes flat, despite the tough conditions. She finished second over-all. Carolyn Bird was second for the women as she capped off a busy day of running with a 65 minute effort. The Coffee O Five is a weekly five-mile road race and 2.4 mile walk which is held every Friday night at 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 clothing is required through the winter months.
