Weekly Back Cove 5k175 runners were met with some fog at the Back Cove this evening, with Michael Payson leading the way by bringing in this year’s fastest time to date: 16:11. Curtis Wheeler was chasing him down, a mere 9 seconds back.

Abbey Gosling again won the women’s race, this week in 19:20.

Kellie Stratton debuted on the leaderboard this week in first place with almost a 2 minute lead.

Nathan Augustine improved his lot to first place by knocking almost 3 minutes off of his cumulative time; he has now made it to all 7 races so far.

I didn’t make it to the race this week; with my legs as sore as they are I decided to do a few easy barefoot miles on the streets near my house with my wife.

We also found a small bug with the Back Cove website software, so if your name didn’t appear in last week’s results that should be resolved soon as we update the standings now that the technical glitch has been fixed.
