Very hot and humid. Hoped to finish within 50 minutes. Only 1 water stop on the course at mile 1. Extreme weather approaching mile 4 - high winds (60+mph), rain and sleet. Very poorly run event - had to really look for water at the end. Refreshments were apples and peaches! Couldn't hear much at the awards ceremony.

High humidity (fog on the way to the race) plus moderate temerature (72°) made it difficult to feel energetic. Was hoping to be faster than last week but was over 30 seconds slower. Got my 10th first place wooden shoe!

I was hoping I could be real close to 2 hours but only managed to be about 20 seconds faster than a month ago. Didn't feel real confident given a week with cold symptoms. Easy to get to, decent price, good shirt, decent course. Wrong turn by everyone but Tom & I was later corrected. Awards were beer glasses - from a race in the spring! Pretty low key event by Frank Johnson.

Got beat by 2.5 minutes by another runner I have not seen before. I was happy with my time as preparation for next week's Champions race. Took two miles on the warm up lap to actually get warm - was able to remove all the extra layers for the race. Had to remove gloves and hat after two miles during the race.
