Big turnout despite the rain. Changing into a dry shirt and shoes worked for about 2 minutes, then I was soaked and the shoes were waterlogged. Race was all on the greenway at Fowler Park - familiar territory. The boardwalk sections of the greenway were a little slippery, but I think the standing water made them less slippery than when they are just damp or frosty.

Lots of company out on the course - I was 45th at the turnaround. I moved up a few spots on the way back and tried to catch one more person but he held me off and beat me by a few seconds. Afterward I discovered he was in my AG, so I logged my second close 2nd AG of the weekend. 26:27 for the distance.

No more dry clothes in the car, but at least there was a towel which felt pretty good - almost as good as sitting in the hot tub in the rain.

    Awesome paste there, Bill, especially given the rain! And a special congratulations first 2nd AG. "A hot tub in the rain" LOL – I'll take your word on it that it feels good. :-)
