Lee ran 4 races in two days (a double Sergio in 169ese). In the 29s in the 5ks (one much slower than that) and my 5 mile was pretty slow. Placed 4th in that.

Well done Brickyarders!

Where the Wild Things Run

Mike, Adam and Lee ran a 5K trail race in Wilton this morning. (Mike really feels like he's not running enough of late. Marathon last weekend. 20 miles yesterday. 4 *before* the race today.) This photo doesn't have Mike in it but it shows how the Run 169 Society (about 1800 members!) pretty much owned this race. Lelsley Fearnley was crowned a Queen today. The latest person to have completed all 169 towns.

The terrain was *very* rooty, stoney, treacherous. Lee fell (didn't get hurt) but Steve Mele fell and was pretty bloody (but fine).

Apple Harvest Southington 5 mile

Lee's Garmin

Noticeably fewer than the usual number of runners this year (I am sure due to weather). Brent, Tray, Joe, Ian, Sara, Larry and Lee ran it. Larry took 2nd to Joe and both killed it. Ian missed placing due to definition of division range (he took 42 minutes). Sara placed. Brent placed 4th. He and Tray were super close at the end. She was sub-40 and both he and Tray were sub-8. Lee placed 1st (and only) with a 9:31 pace. Ryan O'Conner placed 2nd overall (35 years old).

Fall Frolic 2016

Tray likes to call it this (as does Lee) but I think the official name has morphed into Fall Distance Festival. Linda took a few pix and fed us water and gatorade at the 10k split point.

This is my friend Andie.

And of course Jim.

This would be Lee and Tray. Lighten up, us!

Lee ran a measly 2 loops. Tray and Joe 3 (Joe and Lee finished simultaneously ... you do the arithmetic). Sherry saved Tray from dehydration w/ an A&W root beer in front or Marty's place. Joe talked to the winner who explained his coach's recommendation: run 1st 4 easy, middle 10 fast, last 4 easy. Joe asked "What's easy?" Winner said "6s." "Fast?" Winner: "5:20s." Not sure I have this exactly right but basically I am close.

Brent wanted to come but could not due to back problem. Missed him.

Lea did awesome.
