I did NOT run this race. Because I kind of (accidentally?) said I'd possibly consider directing the race, starting next year, maybe. Translated - I was announced as the new race director for next year at this year's race. I guess I'm in.
I 'assisted' this year and - holy cow - it is a lot of work to put on this race! This was the 32nd running of the race, and we had 613 runners/walkers and over 150 male volunteers. Luckily, there were no casualties - and the top gal ran it the hilly, challenging course in 17:40ish - smoking fast.
Here's the news coverage and photo show
Beamer's coverage (including the Brak Pak finish line crew) and my almost-famousness is here

Before the race with my super fotog, Ceci - click to enlarge this one - Jerome hogging the shot in back is hilarious
So, this time next year should be even more interesting!
Thanks to Ceci, Tom, and Randy Beamer for the coverage.
