~4.0 mi @ ~13.9 min/mi

"Me and some guys from school / Had a band, we tried real hard / Jimmy quit, Jody got married / Shoulda known we'd never get far!" 🤖 takes the mic and channels Bryan Adams for the small crowd. Race Director Gretchen Bolton announces that the "Groovin' Woodstock" cross-country run's theme is "Summer of '69". A Canadian applauds. At the Woodstock Equestrian Center rolling hills and broad meadows frame potholes and fragrant manure.

"I'm on drugs!" (naproxen) alludes to the classic faux-rockumentary film "Almost Famous". Tom Young joins in a pre-race area familiarization tour. Official result: 45th place of 52 finishers, 32nd of 33 males, second of three in the 65-69 male age bracket, chip time 55:11. And no falling down! (two years ago: 39:41, cf 2019-08-11 - очень холодно)
