MEMORY RUN 5K, May 20, 2006
Thirty members came out to try something a little different. It was low maintenance, not easy, not hard and luckily we had some cloud cover. I heard some pros and some cons, but that's to be expected.
You hear it over and over again, but take a minute and thank the gracious volunteers who give their time and effort to make CMRA races happen: Scott Mcfarlane is not only our webmaster, membership chair, prints out our race labels, but helped measure and set the course. Also, what would we do without Joe Sanchez and Joe Baird? In addition, thanks to Rob Fisher, Lynn Young, Chuckie Cheese, Mike Vanoni, Phyllis Green & Deborah Acree. Thanks Great Harvest, Runners' Roost in Parker & Boulder Running Company for prizes and overall gift certificates.
Speaking of overall - our overall male and female are a fast couple, Steven and Jill Sellars, 18:10 & 22:51 respectively. It was also refreshing to have several youngsters on the course. Dan Shaw's family came to run, Julie Kimpel's little girls and Ryan Ratledge. Jay Trujillo also brought his mom to the race.
The potluck was definitely a success - we had two great summer pastas made by Marriott Smart & Rosalia Murch, just to mention at random. Deb Acree provided wine to go with our feast. Marie Romero slaved all day making her salsa, however, she said the hardest part was getting that King Soopers' label to print just right on the computer. Thanks everyone for all the goodies!
Stuff: Jim Romero and the O'Donnell's did not waste the day, they ran the Cottonwood Classic 5K in the a.m. Robert Kanieski has moved down to Denver from Grandby, Jim Perry got to sleep till noon because our race was later in the day and Pitts O'Donnell turned the big 60 on Saturday.
