Yellow ribbons warn of slippery mud ahead in the Randolph Rd underpass, where recent heavy rains caused Paint Branch to flood. The MCRRC Eastern County 8k is held on a sultry Saturday morning. Knee pain is minimal – as is cardiovascular fitness!

Official result: 74th place of 82 finishers, 5/5 among males aged 65-69, chip time 1:02:13 for a significant improvement over last years' trekking-pole-assisted limp at ~17 min/mi! (cf 2020-08-02 - Eastern County 8k MCRRC Virtual Race)
