Walkers Stay Home at this Week's Coffee O Five

by FTC

It was up to 23 degrees this Friday night and just ten runners showed up to brave the ice-laden roads. There were no walkers this week. Running five miles over icy roads in daylight is no easy feat, itıs even tougher at night. Last week two runners hit the ground, this week one runner ended up flat on his face on the shoulder of Surf Drive. Former Coffee O Five regular Mike Garry finally returned after a long winter hiatus. The rugged North Falmouth nail pounder was gone for so long he had to reintroduce himself to some of his former running mates. He managed to pick up a pound or two in his break, and maybe lost a minute or two as well, but he still raced home with a fine effort of just over 50 minutes and a coveted top ten finish. Jim Tietje made his first Coffee O appearance of the year and took third over-all in 36 minutes. Jack Carroll chalked up his fastest Coffee O Five time of the year en route to a second place finish. Mr. Carroll finished in 35:40. Bob Richards took fourth for the fourth time in his last five races. Wendy Stafford out-legged Carolyn Bird to take first for the women. The Coffee O Five is a weekly five-mile road race and 2.4 mile walk that 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 welcome to participate. Reflective running gear and the ability to fall gracefully and land well are required through the winter.
