Notes: Tri Valley FR had publicized this race, so a few particularly fast types showed up; Bob Mayer had a 76.95% WAVA and Scott Pettingell had a 72%; Bob Mayer and Abby McCabe switched finishing positions from last year here, new member Carol Leiter of Wayland had a 5K PR, Erin McArdle was both well trained and well rested after wisely skipping a planned half (VT) last weekend because of the record heat, Mike Bower was only 1 1/2 days rested after a prior 5K, Mary Tyler had a knee problem with the “flat” hilliness. Abby was 2nd of 19 in her age group, Jen and Jeanne 1st & 2nd of 9, Scott 2nd of 10. Was that pre and postrace music great or what?! Judy Levine showed a couple of dance steps; Couch to 5K graduates Jackie Judd and Andrew Giovannini got in their 2nd GP race of this Series. Faster than last year here were Bob Mayer (by 0:25), Abby McCabe (by 0:14),and Judy Levine (by 4:46). [more Notes later]
