Another Cold One for Coffee O Fivers

by by FTC

The good news was that is was four degrees warmer then the nine degree temperature of last weekıs Coffee O Five. The bad news was that the wind was much more intense and the roads were covered with ice and snow. The big debate of the night seemed to be, what was worse to run inŠnine degrees and no wind or 13 degrees and a lot of wind. No clear consensus was reached. RegardlessŠ so far 2004 has not been kind to the Friday night runners. Nine runners and two walkers foraged through the night this week. No one ran particularly fast but they all made it through without hitting the ground, although there was one very close call. No one cautioned Wendy Stafford about the danger of trying to run through the dangerous turn at three miles in the snow. After the run everyone gathered around the post race refreshment truck and toasted Coffee Obsession and Paul Hartel for the tremendous contributions they made to post race tailgate party. 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. There is no entry fee for this self-timed event and all runners and walkers are welcome to participate. Warmer weather is in the forecast for next weeks run.
