Dr. Seuss on the loose
Hundreds of walkers, joggers and runners (as well as the occasional roller) focused on Chamberlain Avenue and neighboring streets Saturday morning, taking part in 10-kilometer, 5-kilometer and one-mile events, with a theme of “Dr. Seuss on the Loose.” The gathering’s namesake — the writer and illustrator of such books “Green Eggs and Ham,” “The Cat in the Hat” and “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” — served in the Signal Corps during World War II, working on animated films and cartoons with training messages. Top performers in the 5K included Daniel Lopez (17 minutes and 9 seconds), Brian Hansen (19:41), Danielle Mahoney (25:21) and Alisha Garcia (27:14). Their 10K counterparts were Joseph Kubiak (34:37), Jared Novak (37:17), Genesis Reyes (44:51) and Emily Dowdell (48:31).
