More than 4 minutes slower than last year but I got my 12th first place wooden shoe! Quite humid but I barely met my target of no walking (except for water stop) and within 35 minutes. First race after hernia surgery.

Had to walk this year as still within hernia surgery restrictions. Fastest mile I have ever walked. Enjoyed seeing many old friends.

Lot of groin pain (imminent hernia?) at the start but managed to pick up the pace in the last 2 miles. Still couldn't catch Don - he beat me by about 7 seconds. Mediocre awards!

Battling heat and poor conditioning due to health issues. Had to walk a couple of times in mile 4. Still managed to get under 72 minutes - goal was under 75.

Walked/jogged a couple of miles to loosen up. Legs very heavy. Couldn't maintain an 11 minute pace.

I did the early start at 5:15 PM for 60+. Given the bronchitis for 3 weeks, I didn't want to be out in the dark after sunset around 6:55 PM. Just made it since the early start was delayed about 5 minutes.

New course-new location. Starting to get sick - only beat Don by less than a minute. Didn't catch him until .75 miles to finish.

Even colder this year! Over dressed to stay warm. Revised start/finish line - I forgot my Garmin but others were saying the course is now long. Didn't stay for awards - Gary is going to collect mine.

Not a good race - 6 minutes slower than last year. Didn't push because Grand Prix competitor was home sick and the awards are discounts at the local running store. Lots of rain in the last 3 days but the trails were manageable. Breakfast this year was very good.

Skipped breakfast but had a bloody mary at Gentle Ben's after the race. Awards still suck! (a wooden spoon)

Poorly organized. Only 1st place awards. No water on course, course about .16 long (supposed to be certified!), no porta-johns, didn't have the shirt I ordered, had to rush to get chips just before the start of the race. The good news for me was that I had no breathing/pulse issues during the race.

Cool for the race - a little over dressed. Had heart/breathing problems around 3 miles so had to walk/run the second half.

A lot warmer than last year. Managed to run the entire race. About a minute slower than last year. Good to see old friends getting started for the New Year.
