Another pretty light week on the racing circuit in New England, but it did see, the first WMAC/Dion Snowshoe Series event in Woodford, VT on Sunday (27th). It was the I Love Woodford 5k and it was well represented by CMS who took 6 of the top 11 spots and the individual race winners were Jim Johnson and Abby Mahoney. Writeups: [DD's Blog] [JJ's Blog]. Photo above of Tim Mahoney and Abby Mahoney (otherwise known as the plural of Mahoney which is 'Mahoni') from the end of Woodford. Entire photo set here.
On the quicker side of things, 2009 USATF-NE Grand Prix Champion Justin Fyffe battled a quick field in the 11th annual Millenium Mile in Londonderry, NH. Justin was 2nd overall in an official 4:08 although word is that the times were about 3-4 seconds slow for some reason. Pete Najim (Derry, NH) was really around 4:01 and Justin 4:05.
Other than those two races, the one other even that attracted some striders was another Mass event, the second of a few Boston University Mini-Meets that will take place this winter. Greg Hammett did an even faster double this week as he ran both the mile and 800 meters.
