5th of 8 F70+.
There were 1,926 finishers in this thing, and only one award for age group winners (no usual top 3), and Abby’s group was “0 to 39”!! But it was a great course to get a good time on, although being certified, a little was added to the end, so it was closer to 3.13 miles than the usual 3.106. I might readjust the paces above – stay tuned. Abby McCabe and John Joyce had raced a TRAIL 5K the very day before! Joe Koziol is still “coming back from” a broken arm.
