An Cù Liath "New Deal" Run
Worcester, MA, June 4, 2007
Not sure which was
faster....Tonight's top three runners or the FDR Museum skipping town. Yup
another city institution has left the gate heading to greener pastures
in....Chicopee?? My question is, if you build a museum and don't
tell anyone it's there does it really exist??
Anyway, Mario was back
tonight after last weekends impressive 6th place finish in his marathon debut at
"Vermont City". Another local running standout and newly minted Worcester
cop by the name of Paul Noone came by to offer the first challenge Mario
has seen on our course. Pretty much a battle right through to the end
where they crossed the finish line at the same time with no clear winner.
We are checking the finish line cam to further determine who crossed
first. Not to be outdone was Dave McKenna of Hudson who clocked in at
19:34. Unfortunately the race director screwed up on the results submitted to
the Telegram and Dave's name was not included. Sorry 'bout that.
We celebrated the birthday
of local running fixture Nancy Roberts tonight. No Nancy wasn't there but we
couldn't let a good cake go uneaten. They say it is a no-no to comment
on a woman's age but when you look as good as Nancy does how can you not
wonder...By the way Nancy you missed out on a great Birthday cake but Happy
Congrats to Tracy
Flynn for completing the Vermont City Marathon, her first. Well done!
Finally, don't forget the
Worcester Firefighters Memorial 6Km this Sunday at Institute park. Loads
of money is being raised for local charities through this annual
event. It is the biggest road race in the city and not surprisingly will
likely remain that way.
