Results here. 6th place out of 105. 39:40/6:24 pace. 1st in age group.
Wasn't sure how I was going to do with 80 degree heat, 5,300' elevation, and less sleep than I'd like, but how can I pass up a nearby trail race with a name of "Holy Cow Trail Stampede"?!
Lined up at the start and looked around for fellow Westerly runners, but couldn't find any. They must have been out for a warm-up run.

|My "gold" award for winning age group|
It was cool to win my age group and put Westerly, RI on the map! There was a long break before awards, so I ended up running the 5K course for a cool-down. The race was still going on, so I stopped at each water stop to relax and refresh.
