Fast Times on Bright Night at Coffee O

by by Ken Gartner

What a night for a run! The moon was so bright over Vineyard Sound it was almost like running down Surf Drive in daylight. Twenty-seven runners and half a dozen walkers gathered in Town Hall Square. Usually the times tail off in the winter as it is hard to run fast in the dark, but three runners turned in personal best times this week, and many others had very good runs. It is too bad for Bob Richards that they donıt hold normal road races in the dark, as he seems to be a night person. Mr. Richards chopped a full 30 seconds off his personal best five mile time which he set just last week. Sharon Grace came bounding down Walker Street with her flashlight in hand and also took a full half-minute off her personal best five-mile time. She finished in just a shade over 37 minutes. Kathie Fallonıs time of 42:18 was her personal best. Mike Casso chopped two full minutes off his time of last week en route to a sixth place finish in 34:14. Wendy Stafford was the first woman as she finished with one of her best five-mile times. She finished in just under 35 minutes. Don ³Halfway² Frederickson of Lincoln, Rhode Island had such a good time at last weekıs Falmouth in the Fall Road Race, that he returned a week later to try the Coffee O Five. He finished in a tie for first in just over 31 minutes. Brian Nelson and Jeff List followed in succession. Kris Tholke was third for the women in just under 42 minutes. Courtney DiPaolo made her way through the course without getting lost in her Coffee O Five debut and cracked the top five. The Coffee O Five is a weekly five-mile run and 2.4 mile walk that is held every Friday night at 5:30 in Town Hall Square in Falmouth. There is no entry fee and all runners and walkers are welcome to participate.
