Thanks again to Nancy for directing a great "8 on the 8th" event. It's a great tune-up for my "27 on my 27th" coming up later this month. Viewing the overall results, I took third behind a couple of great runners--Marathon Dude Bill, who is a sub 3:00 runner (something I hope to be by this time next year) and the Toronto Runner, who's race conditions were less than optimum (something I can relate to).
I think the best part of the event was reading the race recaps. My personal favorites were Doug's and Reid's. I mean, Reid got BIT BY A DOG on his run! Wow! Honorable mention goes to The Laminator, who ran a King of the Kick worthy time despite some "issues" he had to attend to.
I was also able to even the score with Doug at 1-1, which felt pretty good after the thrashing I took in Chicago. He's obviously bitter, as he took all the medals home with him and is refusing to reliquish them.
Thanks again, Nancy, and to everyone else who shared their race reports--they were a blast!
