Memorial Run 5K, May 10, 2008
Connie Ahrnsbrak & Rosalie Murch
Third time was not a charm weather-wise. We had some snow, rain, wind and sunshine which made it not too boring for our small group of members who came out to run. Michael Quispe led the way with an overall time of 19:31 with Robert Kessler chasing him with a close second in 19:47. Our overall woman was 51-year old Dani Phillips with a time of 27:17. I am hearing it is not necessarily a flat course.
The addition of a kid's run did not prove a good idea, however, we had one little lady in pink. Five year old Alaya Vigil (Connie's granddaughter) came out to run about 3/4 of the mile, she wanted to know where all the people were. Mats Moreau (8), Jacques Moreau (11) and Joe Black (9) all chose to run the 5K.
The end result, "potluck" was a good time with lots of yummy food and sunshine, thanks to everyone!
We can't thank our volunteers enough so I will just mention their names in alpha order: Joe Baird, Carol Bengston, Dawn & Joseph Estes (Rosalie's daughter & Grandson), Scott McFarlane, Joe Sanchez, Ken Simons & Amber Vigil (Connie's daughter). Also, Jim Peterson helped unload during the snow time. Rosalie and Carol handled registration in the car during the rain time.
Our members who came the distance were: Jim & Jenny Peterson from Longmont; Robert Kanieski & Glenn Bakken from Grandby; Wayne Mathis & Tall Red from Evergreen.
Lastly, thanks to Great Harvest Bread, Boulder Running Company, Runner's Roost, Running Wild, CMRA and Rosalie Murch for gift certificates, and various door prizes.
NOTE: PLEASE LOCK YOUR CARS AT ALL TIMES AND KEEP VALUABLES HOME OR HIDDEN. Jay Trujillo and Dani Phillips had their cars broken into as we sat over at the shelter.
