We left home at 7:00am with our wives coming along as our personal cheering committee. Our little group arrived at the IKON business park just after 8:00am. Jim and I checked-in and got our t-shirts.

The weather was far warmer than it has been during the past few weekends...or even months for that matter. The temperature at the start was about 56-degrees and almost 66-degrees at the finish with blue skies and no wind.
Timing was done with index cards. I finished 5th overall and 2nd in my age-group with an unofficial finish time of 1:04:14 at a 6:53 pace. Jim finished 1st in his age-group with an unofficial finish time of 1:57:51.
