I like this little home town race, and it is my Home Town! I didn't get a 1st place finish but I did manage to grab a 3rd place while I improved my time from a month ago at the Nestle 5K. The conditions kinda sucked.....78 degree at the start with gusting wind both ways. They changed the course this year and this version has several hills on it from start to finish.....oh well, I got the shirt and medal, Game over.
