Non-competitive race. Zann walked and met Paul, Earl and Gary and Nancy. Egg nog was good. We had 5" of snow at home but none down here.

In the last third of the race this year. Steady but slow pace. Dennis and Gary were ahead of me. Paul was under 50 minutes!

New event for me. Not many participants. Able to get credit for both a 5K and a 10K by running two loops for the 10K. First place in both but not very fast.

Even slower than last year. More windy and overcast this year. Better awards though. Gary was 5 minutes ahead. Gates Pass closed on the way back so had to drive 15 more miles to get home.

Made it to the end after a rough night of intestinal problems. Fortunate to place. Better awards (beer glass) this year.

Took it easy because of the lack of hard training. Had to walk most of the last 1/3rd mile up and then a little bit on the last hill coming down. Even though 7 minutes slower than last year, I placed in age group.

Another hot one - over 3 minutes slower than last year. Got the 3rd place award but latest results show me in 4th place. Guess I'll consider it the missing award from last year's 2nd place. Awards an hour earlier than last year.

Overcast but quite humid due to expected afternoon rain. A lot slower than last year - just back from 2 weeks of vacation and no running.

Only about a minute slower than last year - a very tough race. Butch and Paul were 3 seconds apart and over 9 minutes ahead of me. Seemed like a lot less runners this year but only about 20 fewer.

Warmed up by running the course. Two very muddy stretches in the rows between the trees. Very tired - no energy. Upper legs were actually hurting during the race. Will need to rest the day before any important race. Extremely humid. Several minutes slower than last year!

Only 35 minutes away at Rillito Park Race Track. Low key event - good cotton shirt. Soccer fields were in the middle of the race track and Tucson soccer clubs were having a breakfast followed by a couple of meets. Lots of kids in the run. 2/3 of race on dirt.

Worst performance while finishing a race. Had to walk any incline and could only run about 2-300 yards before needing to walk and catch my breath. Walked over 3 miles.

First race after the pulmonary embolism ER stay. Surprised that I was able to run the entire 8K. Older age groups were expanded this year so I got 3rd place in 70-74.

It was a long shot to finish given the PE 5 weeks ago. I did OK for 8.5 miles and then had to run/walk. Quads were not in shape to run up and down A-Mountain.

Ran this one to complete all 12 Grand Prix Races. Quite cool before the Men's race but good temperature for the race. Ran through the water this year - only 1-2 inches deep.

Cold, rainy, windy day with occasional sleet. Low turn out and no age group awards. Beer was good but the brisket samples were too tough to chew. Pulled pork and beans were good.
