Cold Cold Night for Coffee O Fivers

by by FTC

It was nine degrees at the start and eight degrees at the finish this Friday night at the Coffee O Five. It was the coldest night ever in the six and a half year history of the event. Some of the runners had four or five layers of clothing under their heavy sweat shirts, one guy had three gloves on each hand. Even the post race hot cocoa wasnıt all that hot this week. Coffee O Five regulars, Ed Giordano and John Evans, werenıt cold as they were en route to the Disney Marathon in Orlando. For Wendy Stafford and Jack Carroll it was their last cold weather run before heading off to the Phoenix Half Marathon on Sunday. They finished in a tie for third. Kathie Fallon and Sharon Grace traded in their running shoes for walking shoes and teamed up with Kathy Alestra to lead three walkers across the line in just under 40 minutes. Ed Sweeney romped home with a time of 34:10 to take second. Bob Richards finished fourth for the second week in a row. Simon Freeman cracked the menıs top five for his first time with a time of just under 40 minutes. Mary-Louise Timmermans was the second woman to cross the line and Carorlyn Bird rounded out the womenıs field. 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 for this self-timed event and all runners and walkers are welcome. Reflective running gear and warm clothes are required through the winter.
