New event for me. Tight parking - need to get there early. Expensive race day sign-up. Good food and beer after the race (if it's warm enough to hang out!).

Buckley 5 Miler
Lowell IN

Cooler than most mornings in the last 3 weeks. Hadn't run much in a week so this was my carrot to run a little harder. Bob Edwards was there so had to try and stay ahead of him. Cowbell awards again - very appropriate. At least the cornfields were dry this year.

Reid park - expensive and pooly run event. Started over 5 minutes late, mile markers were off by up to .28 miles, 10K times were not available 90 minutes after the start. Left without getting award. Results posted about 48 hours later. Award was mailed in a few days. Probably won't be doing this one next year event though it supports a great cause.
