    Not surprisingly, I was achy after the time off, but it felt great to be outside. I got out on the track while it was sunny.

    I was exhausted at the end, but I PRed by 17 minutes! This race report was added a week later...

      ummmm.... did I know you also went to NCHS? Also, I must have just missed you finishing after I hobbled to my half finish, ate all the food, grabbed my beer and went home. Congrats on the PR!
