Cold and windy was the story tonight. Not windy enough to slow down running phenom Trav"dog"Thompson. After a yearlong running hiatus, Trav's back running sub 20 5ks rather effortlessly.  In the asthmatic Polish geezer division Doc Goolsky was able to outgun Marky Mark Johnson to snag second place. A remarkable feat indeed considering the good doctor spent the weekend dragging a couple of bathtubs out to a beach......If you ran with us Monday's that would make sense.


We also had our first ever Monday night threesome right there in the bar. No I am not joking, there may even be pictures somewhere. Here's how it went down.  Everyone gathered around Sue, Joe and Travis to witness the spectacle. After a rousing chorus of "Happy Birthday" all three got down on some sweet chocolate cake provided by Tracy "my oven is working again" Flynn.


If all of the aforementioned fun wasn't enough to make you say "I have to run with these people", we also held our first, of many? "Greyhound Pub in conjunction with Craigslist degenerate Jobfair"  Sure the recession has hit folks hard, layoffs, pensions wiped out, stocks in the toilet etc. But there are some very good paying jobs available and probably pretty easy to get. With a little initiative, a few minutes on craigslist, and an utter lack of self respect you can be back in the workforce and making some serious greenbacks.  I won't post any of the "positions" available here as this is a family friendly website, but lets just say you won't have to worry about laying out money for uniforms, 'cause you're going to be naked for the most part.


Lastly it is time to wrap up some of the winter weekly runs that many of us attend.  The CMS Saturday am 5k at Worcester state holds it's last race this Saturday. The location of the run than moves north to Devens for the summer. Word on the street is that an "unofficial" Sat 5k will continue at Worcester State through the summer.


My pals at the Somerville Striders Athletic Club continue the Thursday Night 5k  at Olde Magouns Saloon in my old 'hood through April. The location of that run then changes to the banks of the Chuck river over in Cambridge for the summer.


Head to either to hang with some friendly people and of course join us every Monday night year 'round for a 3 mile dash through the Heart of The Commonwealth, Worcester Massachusetts.
