We got there around 9 AM and the 2 miler was going on. The 5 mile race was set for a 10 o'clock start, so we got in a warmup after saying hi to many familiar faces. It didn't take long to spot Shubi, who was in from Colorado and fresh off a 10,000 ft run out there the same day as Slim Pickins.
The weather was perfect and the crowd was large as usual. Ted Rupe gave a pre-race prayer and then sounded the siren to start the race. I felt pretty relaxed despite the tough 50K last weekend. There was a slight wind on the way out and way back, but nothing too strong. I finished with a 33:45. Jamie won her age group and Brian had a good race also.
I have so much to be thankful for and this day is always a great remember of those things!
