2018-01-28 - The Curmudegons

~5 mi @ ~8.6 min/mi

"Curmudgeons" reads the shirt of the runner ahead of me, worn by Mansur Femi Mustapha. He tells me it's from his soccer team and, when I offer to fight him for it, kindly says he'll give me one instead. Thank you, Femi!

The MCRRC Country Road Run is a hilly 5 miler. Light drizzle and a temperature of ~50 °F keeps down the numbers or racers this year. Pushing hard the whole way yields first place among 6 in my age/sex group, a gun time 43:21, behind 21 women and 72 men; a 12-year-old and a 73-year-old finish faster. Comrade Don Libes runs with his arm in a sling, protection while a strain heals, or maybe just a bid for the sympathy vote?
