Pacer (with Andy Browning) for 2:43 group at the Striders 30K. An absolutely beautiful day for a run, and some terrific people to run with. We hit each mile within about 3 seconds of target split time.

Yo Pro, It sure was good to see ya at the Des News 10k, I only got to the finish line a few seconds before you!!! I guess I was just lucky since my beard is much heavier and less wind resistant than yours!
