Young Fast Legs at Coffee O Five

by by Ken Gartner

It was another large fast field for this weekıs Coffee O Five Road Race. Six guys raced through the first mile in under five and a half minutes. In the midst of the pack were two 16-year-old runners who could be welcome to the Falmouth High cross-country team this fall. Justin Ladner led two other family members across the line with a strong fourth place finish in just over 30 minutes. Mike Stone took a full two minutes off his old Coffee O Five personal best, en route to a sixth place finish in just under 31 minutes. Kevin Gray ran uncontested to win the race in just over 28 minutes. Mel Gonalves, who is training for a long ultra running expedition, took third again as he did last week. Bill OıMara , a former Coffee O regular, weathered the long drive from Bristol, Rhode Island and made his first appearance in almost two years. Mr. OıMara finished fifth. Lynn Holmgren also obliterated her personal best Coffee O Five time. She raced home to another womenıs win and her time of 32:14 was a full 45 seconds faster than her former personal best. Wendy Stafford edged Joan MacClary for second. Finishing in a tie for fourth were Pat Kukla and Carmen Moore who are both from Atlanta, Georgia. 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. Coffee Obsession on Queens Byway generously supplies cold bottled water afterwards.
