Snowstorm Classic #8 - 5K
January 22, 2005

      Peter Maksimow and Kelly Heroux Overcome Cold

              Low single digit temperatures had Forest Park locked in a deep freeze today, not unusual for a January Snowstorm Classic.  But the runners did their best to heat things up once they heard the sound of the Sacramento cowbell.
            Five runners quickly separated from the pack led by Harriers Carlos Rivera and Paul Fratini and CMSer Peter Maksimow, with GSHer Steve Lombardo and Kevin Somers giving chase.  True to form Carlos soon forged ahead of the Central Mass Strider, forcing the pace for two reasons: to win and to stay warm.  But for the third time this season Mr. Maksimow had the better finish as he outran Carlos in the last kilometer 17:10 to 17:22 to notch his third Snowstorm Classic crown.  Paul sped home 3rd in 17:42 with Steve 4th in 18:18 followed by Kevin in 18:45.
            Harriers sweep the older age divisions with Noiel Fontaine placing 6th to win the masters (over 40) race in 20:26, Seth Roberts crossing next in 20:51 to win the senior (over 50) division and Art Roberts taking the veterans (over 60) title again in 21:55.  First junior (under 20) was John Vaughn in 21:10.
            Kelly Heroux won her 4th Snowstorm Classic this season in 21:23 to continue her rapid ascent in the Snowstorm Classic Hall of Fame.  The steadily improving Harrier began the year tied for 27th with lots of others and is now in 14th place.   Elaine Skawski impressed the frozen spectators and officials with an ice solid 22:51 2nd place while Mary Bazanchuk was 3rd in 24:09 edging Elizabeth Cullinan (24:29) and Lauren Stocker (24:30) for the junior girl title. GSHer  Ellen Bellicchi won both the master and senior divisions in 25:49 while Sugarloaf Mountainís super senior Sue Grant kept warm with a 27:43 victory
