Ramble On!!






Three big plusses to this year‰Ûªs Ramble: 1) It wasn‰Ûªt, ala last year‰Ûªs race, run in mid-90è_ heat; 2) The soggy weather forecast for southen New England never extended to the Endicott Estate in Dedham, and 3) Celebrity Chef Angelo at the grill behind the TIR RV (but we‰Ûªll save that for a sidebar in the mag).
 
The Race: The new yellow singlets of the BAA, revealed at the 114th Boston Marathon a week earlier, were on display up front as 2008 Ramble champ Mark Miller, 30, of Keene, NH, took the point along with recently graduated Carnegie Mellon standout Brian Harvey, 22, of Allston. North Dighton‰Ûªs Kyle Sousa also made a bid early before slippting to 6th (33:06).
 
This was pretty much decided in the second mile on Lowder Street as Harvey opened up a 10m gap on Miller to hit the second mile in 9:42. The multi-time D3 All American ran steady from there‰ÛÓhis slowest mile a 4:59 through the hills of Noble & Greenough. 
 
Harvey would win in 30:43 with Miller second in 31:36 and Patrick McAdie making it a BAA sweep in 31:42. The Cambridge Sports Union‰Ûªs Stephen Granger-Bevan was the first finisher over 32:00, taking 4th in 32:28.
 
‰ÛÏToo warm,‰Û was how 2009 runner-up Maria Busienei, 24, summed up her runner-up showing. ‰ÛÏI had a good day today,‰Û was her feeling on the 2010 race after winning in 36:31 over former Brandeis ace Mariko Holbrook (36:53). Franklin‰Ûªs Nicole Murphy, 24, ran 6-flat to post up 3rd in 37:16 with Doyle‰Ûªs 5M winner Kristin Murphy 4th in 37:45 and New Balance-Boston‰Ûªs Yvonne Green, 27, fifth in 38:31.
 
The Open $ went $500-400-300 with the Masters purse at $400-300-200, which led to some heated action, especially on the men‰Ûªs side as 40+ runners went 8-9-10 overall, led by former Cape Cod Marathon winner Keven O‰ÛªNeil of North Kingstown, RI in 33:33.
 
‰ÛÏI used to run against Keiron (Tumbleton) but what‰Ûªs the other guy look like? Queried O‰ÛªNeil, who only needed to look back to catch a glimpse of Hurtin‰Ûª For Certain‰Ûªs Jason Cakouros, 44 (33:42). Tumbleton grimaced his way to third in 33:54.
 
Long-time Stratford, CT resident Zofia Wieciorkowska (POL), 47, powered her way to 9th overall in 41:07 to win the 40+ title handily. 
 
No records were set on the day, including the age groups through 70+ despite some stiff times. Dr. Bob Hillman orated the Joyce trivia quiz and was later seen exchanging pleasantries with Chef Angelo and the TIR squad.
