Assis leads tight field

   Dave Harvey and Ken Neils stood at the finish line holding their stopwatches and clipboards.  As the stopwatch ticked past 21 minutes, nobody had finished the 3.55 mile race.  By the time another minute had passed, though, Joachim de Assis had led eight people past the finish line, an unusually close mass finish for Roxbury.

    The early phases of the race featured Assis and New Milford High School star Jordan Akselrad off the front, pursued by JT Schemm and Mike Abraham, both teachers at New Milford High School.  Assis had a strong downhill to the first mile mark and managed to pull away.  Jordan drifted back, finishing only 35 seconds behind the winner, but this week that was good only for 7th place.

   Assis turned the tables on Schemm, who finished second last week as Assis finished third.

   Pam Quist led the women, well ahead of her rivals Kyle Gancher, Peg Molina, Lynn Zuback, Nora Hulton and Judy Wilson, who all finished in the space of 38 seconds three minutes behind Quist.  

   That Kyle could run at all is something of a miracle.  Two weeks ago, a rare nerve disease had her hospitalized, unable to lift her arms or legs.  Doctors were evaluating whether or not to put her on a respirator.  A week ago, she was barely able to balance with a walker.  Doctors hoped she would be walking normally by June, perhaps running in November.  Now, she's back home, getting back to speed, and running Roxbury.   You can read some of her account of the venture at The latest News from Kyle

    The Old Fossil is starting to wish he'd pegged Keyless Bob Derringer with a far more insulting nickname, as Keyless clobbered Fossil for the third week in a row, in what is rapidly becoming one of Roxbury's most hotly contested and one-sided rivalries.  Fossil led for three miles of the 3.55 mile course.  Keyless had the lead for the first half mile and the last hundred yards.  Fossil thought he had a pretty good kick going, but Keyless made him look like Wiley Coyote in a Roadrunner cartoon as he spun past.
