A perfect day for running

Frigid Fiver draws 350, benefits club, local charities


Part of that fast pack and taking second place was Jordan Kinley, 29, of Salem with a time of 26:25.

“It was perfect,” Kinley said of the course and conditions. “It was so warm that I took my gloves off and I dropped one. There was a little bit of rain during the last 3 miles, but other than that, it was perfect. You couldn’t have asked for a better day considering the last few weeks with the Arctic vortex and all that.”

Gary Cuneo, 28, took third for the men, finishing just one second behind Kinley at 26:26.

Meagan Nedlo, 31, of Salem was first for the women with a time of 29:16.

“The conditions were beautiful,” said Nedlo, who was running her first Frigid Fiver. “I’m wearing shorts. I don’t need any gloves. It was a little windy in a couple of sections, but I can’t even complain about that because, with the weather we have had, this is the best-case scenario by far.”

Apryl Sabadosa, 30, of Westfield placed second for the women and recorded a personal record of 29:34, all in bare feet.

“I’ve been running barefoot for close to two years as of April and this winter I’ve only been barefoot a handful of times since January, because there’s been a lot of ice and snow and some really cold days,” she said. “That’s why my feet kind of hurt right now. They’ve been a mess since Mile Three. But I am running the Boston Marathon barefoot in April, so this is a good tune-up race.”

Newburyport’s Maddy Hribar, 29, was taking a break from running extreme 100-mile races to finish third with a time of 30:14.

“It’s my hometown, it’s a fun Super Bowl Sunday,” said Hribar. “I’m going home with $50. I can live with that.”
