“It’s about those few moments of glory after the end of the race, where the world around you is spinning and walking in a straight line is impossible–that moment when you can’t help but smile, because even though you may not have won or beaten anyone else, you know that you gave absolutely everything you possibly could into that race and there’s nothing that you could have done better.” – Laura Weisberger
“ftly” means faster than last year at this race
Age-graded time is done for the actual year of a racer’s age, rather than just by the 10-year age division the runner is in.
WAVA% 60-69.99 is locally competitive, 70-79.99 regionally competitve, 80 & above nationally competitive (“competitive” meaning that there would be a reasonable chance at placing 1st-3rd, 5th, or at least would be a threat to do so).
If you ran this race but don’t see your name here, please contact Eric or Tom by January 1,
(Because this does happen — members not noticed in the results — the above point totals have to be considered tentative until well after the newsletter is out).
