Spring Brings Out Large Coffee O Five Field

by by Ken Gartner

Spring must be hereŠCoffee Obsession is now supplying ice cold water to the thirsty Friday night runners, as opposed to steaming hot chocolate. The warm weather brought out the largest field yet for the year, as 38 runners and nine walkers participated in this weekıs event. Dana Miskell again posted the time to beat, as he toured the course early in 32:37. The time stood up for his second third place finish in the past three weeks. Greg Stone, a Cape Cod road running veteran from way back, set the pace early with a strong first mile and held on for second place. His time of 29:27 was his best five-mile effort in many years for the injury plagued speedster. Patrick Parker of Oak Bluffs chalked up his first top five finish, as he trailed Matt Plant to the finish by just 20 seconds. After his fine effort, Mr. Parker dashed off to Woods Hole to catch the ferry back home. Sixty-five-year-old Mike Mullo didnıt lose very much speed during his long winter Coffee O Five layoff. He managed a sixth place finish with his time of 36:22. Stace Beaulieu was the first of 16 women to cross the line this week. It was a close race for the next four spots, as the next four women crossed the line within 30 seconds of one another. Kris Tholke and Katleen Savage finished together in 40:24, with Liz Waldman and Eileen Miskell finishing close on their heels to take fourth and fifth. Linda Dalton returned after a long injury-induced layoff and finished with a trio of women in just over 50 minutes. Five-month-old Leanna Girton, cracked 50 minutes for five miles, with perhaps just a little help from dad. Bob Richards is no fool. He tucked in behind big Dan Webb on Surf Drive and used him to shield the strong head wind. The result was a personal best for Mr. Richards who is training in earnest for next monthıs Boston Marathon. 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.
