Wow! What a wonderful Men’s Four Miler we had out at Foxfield yesterday. And with so many of you either racing or helping, it really felt like the good old days again.
Our guys raced exceptionally well over the rolling slick grassy paths and cambers of this beautiful course. Here’s just a small sampling of our hearty harriers:
Harry (1st), Jason (1st), Bob J. (2nd), Jim R. (2nd), Mike C. (2nd), Brian C. (3rd), Russ S. (3rd), Larry (4th), Peter, Rick W., Brian G, Philip, Jordan, Trent, John D., Bill A., John T., Bill P., Jay T., Mark F., Tim W., Jim A. and Pat, to name just a few who had excellent performances. Plus, our teams stacked up well, too.
Here are results:

And what a huge volunteer turnout we had, as so many of you came out to lend a hand in the cold with Audrey, Cynthia and me.
Many thanks to Scott, Katie P., Megan, Kristen H., Marti’, Tammy, Rachel L., Heidi J., Michelle, Heidi G., Gretchen, Anders, Elizabeth, Jacqui, Rachel W., Bronwyn and Brian. I appreciate these folks helping to make the event such a safe and enjoyable success!
With only two weeks until our marathon, I’m encouraging those of you racing it, to stop by to chat about your personal race day game plans. Text me ahead of time to set up a time to meet outside.
And speaking of the marathon, we could use help on Sunday November 15 in two shifts (5:30-7:30 and 7:30-10:00).
