Mike ran a short one in Roxbury and then showed up and beat Lee at Monroe. Hmmm. The weather was better than forecast. Lee nursed his right calf throughout the race and crossed with Laurie von Schmidt. She got him by a full 0.57 seconds. Course was a tad short. A few hills.
The registration area and the awards area were plastered with pi posters done by the kids. The money raised will go into the Kathy Kuhl Memorial Fund. Kathy was a math teacher at Masuk High School.

We all received "dog tags" with her name, the number pi out to a respectable number of decimal places and the name and date of the race. The T shirt had a very cool Pi Guy and Pi Gal (see above) design by Hayley McClure. Bob Dacey gave Lee his shirt (Lee signed up race day (no shirt)). The divisions in the race included 40+ for men and women. Hmmm. Lee chatted with the RD Mary Ahlers who did a great job with the pie eating contest, prize raffle and awards. This was the first race they'd ever done and they were looking for feedback.
The 169 Society was well represented. What a great influence on racing this group is having.
