It is upon us. Who is in the final tally? Weather looks almost reasonable for once. Meaning, I must not be in shape or something...

I'll be up there! My girlfriend is also strapped with a second hotel room which she's willing to give up for a fee less than what she's paying for. Any takers??

Not really what I was hoping for. Great for most, sucky for the post-race party.

It was cold so I did not hang out in the finisher area very long. I went straight over to Angies and went inside ready to drink and celebrate. Walked the aisles and looked around the bar but did not see y'all Sad Where inside were you? Then I went over to Fitgers for my second party and did well there Very Happy

Paul Stein, Professional Pacer. Love it! If only the reporter knew about his dance with the chainsaw.
