This is that dangerous time of year in Cleveland when you imagine spring to be right around the corner. But be careful, because it’s not even close. These few days of sun and warmth are just teasers, designed to crush hopes. We must be patient. It’s important to remember this, so when it snows next week, we’re not all caught outside in Bermuda shorts with our tears freezing to our cheeks.
Even if Cleveland Spring is a flighty mistress, the racing season is getting well and truly fired up.
This weekend, SSSMST athletes were testing fitness across the region, from Lorain to Buffalo and several places in between. Read on for race reports from Jim (who was VERY HAPPY), Aaron (who was not), Kevin, Marty, Andy, and Mike.

The West End Tavern’s Chili Bowl has for years marked the start of the Cleveland Running Scene. Every year, it seems to come sooner and sooner… interesting. This year, Brandy Smith and Paul Lentini were there to test their early season legs. Brandy had a nice sub-8 race, finishing in 24:37. Paul met his race goal of not re-viewing the prior night’s dinner, so all’s well that ends well there.
Mike Schaefer has been racing on his nordic skis a lot, too. He’s got a race report this week from the North American VASA, where he finished the 27k Freestyle race in 7th overall, out of 120 men. Mike also had a nice result this weekend at the Nordic Flurry, northeast Ohio’s
only premier XC races. We’ll have to wait for that report– the results aren’t up yet.
Click through for the reports– and to see what Paul was hoping to NOT see again on Saturday morning!
