Wanderers Succumb to Cake in Lobster
The last complaint you would expect to hear from a group of
Wanderers is that they had been served too much cake. But
that is exactly what Boston Marathon ace Kim Pierce
and Rock Steady were muttering after the
Lobster Classic 10-miler in Hancock, Maine, on July 26. In
this race, it was a case of too much Judson Cake.
The Wanderers duo turned in two excellent runs with Kim running
the hilly Maine coastline course in 1:22:29. Rock Steady was
hot on her heels in 1:22:33. But even these performances could
not match the run produced by 25-year-old Judson Cake
from Bar Harbor. Cake captured the 10-mile race in a time
of 57:47 beating his nearest competitor by almost two minutes.
The Wanderers finished 14th and 15th respectively out of
28 runners, and Kim placed second in the women’s division.
Meanwhile, Kim’s daughter (and Snake Bite’s niece)
Morgan Southgate won third place in the girl’s
division of the 2.5 kilometer race. The nine-year-old Morgan
was timed in a snappy 13:24.
Pieman Tom Humphrey was scheduled to run
in the 10-mile race in what was being billed by the locals
as a showdown between Pieman and Cake. However, Pieman was
waylaid at Fernel’s Down East Lobster Pound, and was
never seen afterwards.
