Faluotico and Stafford Win in Rain
by by Ken Gartner
Thirty-four runners and just two walkers braved the cold and rain this
Friday night at the Coffee O Five. Steve Faluotico and Wendy Stafford
proved to be good bad weather runners. The strong northeast headwind on Surf
Drive didnıt seem to phase Mr. Faluoutic as he raced through it at sub six
minute pace to finish in a tie for first with one of his better Coffee O
Five times. Ms. Stafford chalked up a personal best time on a very tough
night to run. Her time of 35:12 stood up for third place in a very
competitive womenıs race.
Younger legs prevailed this week, as Lynn Holmgren raced home in 33
minutes and change to take first in the womenıs race and fifth place
over-all. Hot on her heals was Nanci Cahalane who finished just 14 seconds
later to take second. Stace Beaulieu edged Jessica Smith-Rohrberg for fourth
in the womenıs race.
Mike Ouimet was the early pace setter and he held on for a third place
finish in just under 32 minutes and just two seconds off his time of last
week. Jason Goux, a former Falmouth resident now residing in Minneapolis
crossed the line six seconds later to take fourth in his Coffee O Five
debut. Chris Lisko rounded out the top five for the menıs field.
Barbara and Don Lunn were the only walkers this week. They trudged
home in just over 40 minutes. The Coffee O Five will celebrate its sixth
anniversary in two weeks and the walk is now over one year old.
The Coffee O Five is a weekly five-mile race and 2.5 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
encouraged to participate.
