Fast Night For Coffee O Fivers.... Personal Best Times Abound

by by Ken Gartner

It was a perfect fall night for a run at this weekıs Coffee O Five and over-all most of the forty runners were very pleased with their times. Four runners chalked up personal best times and many others chalked up their best times of the year. The cool brisk air coupled with the strong tail-wind over the last two miles just made it difficult to run slow this night. Fourteen walkers strode the 2.4 mile course as well. It was just a lame five way tie for first place over-all as five guys pranced into Town Hall Square running abreast and settled for an intentional tie. Steve Hamel followed in sixth and his time of 32:15 was a full minute faster than his previous seasonıs best time. Brian McDevitt had a fine run as he finished in just over 39 minutes which a personal best for him. The women had a real race as Sharon Grace edged Karin Smith by just 10 seconds. Ms. Grace crossed the line in 37:35, which knocked a full minute off her five-mile personal best time. It was also the first Coffee O Five win for the speedster from North Falmouth. Kris Tholke took third in just over 39 minutes. Sabine Mecking and Caroline Roberts finished just seven seconds apart to take fourth and fifth respectively. Both women finished with their personal best five-mile times. Kelle List took seventh in 43:32, which was a personal best time for her as well. 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 and all runners and walkers are invited to participate.
