1999 Westwood Benefit for Stroke Research

Saturday, May 29, 1999

Report by: Eric Barron

It is not often, and often never, that any of us gets to have the exciting feeling of being the first man/woman to cross the line. To get that feeling, however, one thing you have to do is race. Meschelle spent the week debating about whether she would run the above-titled 5K, and finally decided to do so. Good thing she did because her 21:14 was good enough for first overall woman. The time is even better than it seems because the route is mainly uphill (those of you who have run the Terry Fox/John Wayne Cancer Research 5K have a good idea of the size of the hill).

Kim also ran and took third in her age division and fourth overall woman with a 22:05. Also, Jill, who has a total of one track workout under her belt, finished around 26:00. Although the race was small, they provided great food afterwards and lots of it: Bagels, muffins, fruit, juice and tons of give aways. Next year, go run, watch Meshelle defend her title, and dig the food. (With Peggy Sauve-Enriquez reporting from the field)
