Campbell Proves Critics Wrong
"He's all washed up!"
" He’s over the hill!"
" He couldn’t run his way out of a brown paper
These were some of the comments circulating
around the Wanderers clubhouse about Sam "Campy"
Campbell. Campy in his prime had run the marathon
in 3 hours and 3 minutes. Many Wanderers would kill in order
to register that type of time. Campy has also bagged numerous
New York and Boston marathons. But for the last decade, Campy
had disappeared from the running scene.
Well, the word out on the street is that Campy
is back. Campy joined by stepchildren Sam and Susannah
Ames and Rock Steady ran the Rockport
(Massachusetts) 5k for Wellspring in mid-June. Campy and Susannah
grabbed fourth place in the prestigious father-daughter competition
in a combined time of 60:24. Sam teamed up with the other
Sam to finish 9th in the father-son competition.
In the individual competition, Susannah Ames
ran in the 5k in a sparkling 26:21 to finish 63rd out of 273
runners. The two Sams battled it out finishing in 33:59 and
34:03 respectively. Rock Steady surprised even himself with
a 34th place finish in 23:15.
Stay posted to the Wanderers website for future
appearances by Susannah and the two Sams.
