Snowstorm Classic #2 - 5K
December 14, 2002

      Rivera 17, Roberts 28, Blanchard Loses 1 and Gains Another!    

          Carlos Rivera ran away from the rest of the field to capture his first Snowstorm Classic win of the season in a quick 16:56. The victory was his 17th lifetime and moves him past Steve OíNeil into fourth place in the \Snowstorm Classic Hall of Fame. Twenty-one year old Tom Michaud was a game 2nd in 17:43 while Harrier stalwart Steve Byrne led a team of GSHers for 3rd in 17:55. John Cote was first master in 19:26 while Seth Roberts took senior honors in 20:18.
          Dawn Roberts also captured her first win of the season with a solid 20:18 clocking, thus notching her 28th lifetime victory and moving her one step closer to Hall of Fame leader Mary Ryczek. Teammate Mary Misiaszek was second for the second week in a row in 21:45 while Ruth Griffiths placed 3rd in 23:15. Kim Freedman was first master in 24:03 while Ellen Bellicchi was first senior in 24:57.
          Charlie Towse added to his credentials as fastest runner in the family by cracking another one of Doug Blanchardís age records. The 65 year old Harrier speedster ran 21:07 over the USATF certified course to chop nearly a minute off the 21:59 standard Doug set twelve years ago. In fact, Charlie ran six seconds faster then he did when he set the record for 64 year old men last year! Olympics in 2008 Charlie?
          Meanwhile Doug was never one to rest on his laurels. If you lose one, you gain another. With a 27:58 effort Doug ties the record for 77 year old men set by GSHer Robert Knowlton seven years ago.
