Last Daylight Coffee O Five For Awhile
by by Ken Gartner
It was cold and also the last Coffee O Five to be run in daylight for
quite a while. Thirty-one runners and eight walkers took part in this
edition of the pre Cape Cod Marathon Coffee O Five. It was a three-way tie
for first for the men. Brian Nelson out-kicked David Farrell for fourth by
just ten seconds. Mr. Nelson had the advantage of having slightly younger
legs then Mr. Farrell. Hanumant Singh, who lives on the course, chalked up
one of his best Coffee O finishes with a sixth place effort.
Kris Tholke took first for the women with time of just over 40 minutes.
Finishing in a three-way tie for second was the trio of: Joanna York, Mary
Olenik, and Stace Beaulieu. Judi Keller matched strides with Leslie
Hempling of Pennsylvania in a tie for fifth. Ms. Hempling was tuning up for
Sundayıs Cape Cod Marathon.
The Coffee O Five is a weekly five-mile run and 2.4 mile walk that is
held every Friday night at 5:30 from Town Hall Square in Falmouth. Costumes
and reflective running gear will be required for next weekıs Halloween O
