Tracy (4th woman, 1st in division, 14 and medium change)
Adam scorched this one with a 14:02
Lani placed as well but best we could do (she had to leave early) is show you Linda and Rose holding all our trophies.

Looks like a quiet Saturday at Brickyard. Tray, Mike, Adam, Brent (YAY!!!!), Mama Rose (YAY!!!!) and Lee will be doing Tinsel Fun Run 2 miler in Berlin. Lindsey's icing, swimming and not running to take care of a sore hip flexor and will be back next week. Not sure about the other "L's." Have a great weekend everybody. For Tray, Lee, Mike ... your assignment is to write the word TAPER on the blackboard 100 times. Roxbury full. 8 days.

Lani's running Malibu Fitness in Farmington ( with her Mom :-) )
Dave and Barbara are running Malibu too.
Lee's running the Turkey Trot in Barton, VT (5k)
Lindsey's nursing a hip flexor ( overzealous on Saturday w/ a hill she spotted :-( ). Taking to the pool.
Everybody else is either slackin' and/or eating turkey.
Here's a fun puzzle for your Thanksgiving break.
Have a wonderful weekend everybody. Be thankful to be running, alive, among friends.

Our very own Tracy was the 1st woman overall at the Wallingford Turkey Trot this afternoon and was 1st in her division (obviously!).
Larry Regan was 6th overall with a time of 35:45.
Lee placed 1st in his division with a time of 42:52.
Plus, he got a turkey!
It was bitter cold and extremely windy. The 5 mile course has a mile flat stretch, a right turn and then about a mile and a half gradual up up up. Then a 180 turn and a mile and a half down down down parallel section. Left turn and back to the start. Food was great, per usual. Don't look for results on the internet. They do it the old fashioned way.
BTW, Janit Romayko, pictured above, ran the 5K that Adam did yesterday, another race this morning somewhere at 11 AM and then this one. And, won a turkey. She's in Debticonn and has about 140 towns done. She's a mere 67.
Adam posted this on Facebook. His group has evolved into a 100+ member society of dedicated runners. Their goal: Do Every Blessed Town In Connecticut. The idea has become so big timing companies have established races in towns that never had a race just so they can reach this ambitious goal. They have meetings, their own shirt (see below) and drive lots of miles to get to each venue. This is a life-long goal. I wonder how big they'll be in 2020?
"Today I ran the Ekonk Hill Turkey Farm 5K in Sterling, CT. My time was 24:14 or 7:49 M. I came in 13th place out of 85. Most of the race was on dirt road, so my time was little slower than my normal pace. This was first ever road race in Sterling.This race was organized by First-Mile at the request of my running group Debticonn."
