Scrabble Scramble 2.5 Miler
Nashua, NH, August 30, 2004
10 minutes prior to race time it was extremely hot and humid...
5 minutes to race time it started sprinkling...
5 minutes into the race the skies opened up and it poured...
and lightninged... (is that a word???)
Newcomers Trevor Merrill and Brock Dastous battled mother nature and
each other over the 2.5 mile course with Merrill coming out on top
15:35 - 15:41. Kelsey Hunt, Emily Mastropiero, and Kelsey Connors
made it close for the ladies finishing in 19:05, 19:08, and 19:12.
12 runners toed the line, but 4 were DNF - Lightning.
Jim Hansen was the lone runner to keeps his wits about him on the
course and make a valid word from the 9 letters out on the course.
Hansen, a Nashua school teacher, scored 62 bonus points for the word
TEACHER. Only one other runner submitted a word, but it was invalid
as it used one letter twice - a definite scrabble boo-boo.
Next week's theme is What's My Time? All runners will guess their
finshing time prior to the race. Runners finishing within 1 minute
of their guess will score bonus points.
