April 6, 1997
Peter, Bob and myself went to Cohasset in the afternoon to watch the 10k there – I decided to do my watching from the roadside, whereas Peter and Bob did it by running the course. Missy had a great run, cheered on by Bob, running her way into second place (and a PR) in the last few hundred yards. Many of us were glad to see her beat the third woman, who had the audacity to wear a headphone radio – no doubt she failed to hear Missy coming up on her as a result. Other CRC runners included Brian Barringer and his girlfriend Allie, Ranjeet, Ginny, Dave Quilty, and Kerry. Afterwards a few beers and showers were had at Kerry’s house, followed by a few more beers and food at the traditional postrace party hosted by Kerry’s friend in Scituate. A good time was, I think, had by all.
