What started as a chilly morning (38 degrees! Frost! Armwarmers!) became a fantastic day for running by 8:30 am. We tackled the 3.7 mile Ranney Hill course, only in reverse. It was a speedy course with Jeff Sheldon (appropriately sleeved) finishing first overall in 22:02 and Mary Schafer finishing first among the (six) women in 27:17.
While we lost most of our women's field to the Ragnar race, it was good to see Alejandro ("Please, just let me go!") Also glad that Ray not only came back, but stayed upright the entire time. Well played, Ray. And welcome back to Jim, who returned from places afar. Kudos to Brian for his matching shirt, shorts, socks, and shoes. Too matchy-matchy? We think not. Michelle looked great in a tennis-chic running skirt. She also signed up for her first marathon this week.
A quick safety reminder: please keep an eye out for other runners. Sometimes following the course can be difficult for newcomers. Thanks to Corrine for staffing the finish line and a belated birthday. As always, thanks to Bob for setting up and taking down the race course. Congratulations to everyone who ran alternate races this weekend! Charlie and LeeAnne each captured age group awards at a duathlon. We are waiting on Ragnar results.
Next week, we'll run "The Pretzel" 5.05 miles down Ranney, up Hemlock, down Chalybes. See you there!
