Black Cloud over Mayor's Cup

Despite the surprisingly sunny skies on Sunday, it seems NETT was covered by a big black cloud at Franklin Park.

After managing to get five hearty souls signed on to run the Franklin Park 5K at the Mayors Cup XC race, when all was said and done, only two Mini Ponies crossed the finish line, Dave Hannon and Janos Mako, thanks to a set of circumstances beyond our control (a car accident and a migraine headache).

But always the optimists, we here at the NETT news desk want to highlight the bright spots. First off, Janos Mako, aka the Hungarian Land Shark, ran a great 5K to finish up at 19:11, 10 seconds better than his time from last year and 7th master overall. We should all be that lucky, huh?

And in the boys' 11-12 year old race, Noah Miller-Medzon aka Little Skittles, blasted out a 6:52 for 1.1 miles to finish 21st out of 154 kids. Congrats!

Given that kind of bad kharma, maybe it's time we all go volunteer at a homeless shelter or something?
