Rivera Cruises to 37th Snowstorm Classic Title
Kelli Lusk Speeds Under 40:00 Again
weather turned colder for the season’s final tour over the
Snowstorm Classic long course but the results were more
predictable...Carlos Rivera and Kelli Lusk for the win.
has practically owned the 10K course this winter, with today’s
victory he pocketed five of the six races.
Never seriously challenged, he soloed around the Forest Park
roads in a sharp 36:28 while earning his 37th career
Snowstorm Classic title.
His Hall of Fame lead is going to be difficult to overcome in
the ensuing years.
Empire One’s Bob Landry gave admirable chase to finish 2nd
in 37:34, just outlasting 3rd place finisher Steve
Lombardo (37:50) of the host Harriers.
Steve O’Neil (40:37) outran fellow GSH senior Rich Clark
(41:32) to garner both the master and senior titles while Art
Roberts (43:32) added another veterans title to his collection.
Lusk, journeying down from the mountains and trails of Amherst,
clocked her second sub 40 minute effort in as manner starts over the
relatively flat Forest Park roads.
The speedy Central Mass Strider just missed the age record
she set last month with a 39:46 finish.
One’s rapidly improving Sheila Osgood was 2nd in 40:51
while Harriers Mary Ferraro
(41:23) and Kelly Joyce (42:04) chased her.
Rogina Modestow (44:40) was the first master and
Carol L’Esperance (48:33) was the first senior for the home
the dry roads, the cold temperature kept anyone from breaking an age
Classic generation gap?
Only four runners (two men and two women) under the age of 30
(and none under 24) competed.
However twenty-seven runners over the age of 50 ran and all
finished, including four women.
Hey kids, it wasn’t that cold (28 degrees)!
