The Good Doobie 2.6 & 5.2 Miler
Cambridge, Massachusetts
Hosted  by the Somerville Striders Athletic Club

Well, it was an unusually chilly June evening to run/walk and the runners and walkers - 46 in total STILL showed up this evening 

In this humble running scribes opinion "when a race promoter/director uses poor weather as an excuse for no one showing up, it is time to get out of the biz, no matter how much free stuff one finds in a race bag, especially when promoting an - ole fashion road race - cause ole fashion runners nevah let poor weather get in the way"

Anyway, this RD obsessed tonight over whether to start BBQing the meat early or wait - we had pork tonight..the skunk got skewered two weeks back:>)  I decided to start early so that I could watch the TWO winningest women in Somerville Road Racing History duke it out..Marie Kemp & Michelle McAndrew both showed up this evening and combined have the most ever road racing wins in Somerville, Massachusetts and I should know since I am the official road racing results archivist for the City since 1988 - these two chicks were racing in "The Ville" way before it was popular and the place to be!!

So Marie Kemp of Jackson, Mississippi aka Marie Christian now of Quincy, Massachusetts smoked Michelle and every other dame that showed up tonight....Amy Porter of Cambridge, Massachusetts gave Marie a run for her moooney but when MK aka MC wants to turn on the jets she can and she does!! Tonight she did and "The Big Fella" is happy cause MK aka MC is one of his fave runners and friends of all time!
We also gave away some adidas sneaks tonight..Bev Zaluk & Brian Poli were the winners and not because they crossed the Finish Line first but just because they are good runners are a dime a dozen....good doobies are hard to find:>)
