I Lied: Equinox Review and Other Tales
The joke of the morning, however, which came from several runners, was "uhhh which way do we go?" About seven arrows were painted with blaze orange on the road before the turn, there were pie plates with arrows, and three of us with flags. So a bit of overkill. Nevertheless, with traffic coming up one way, weary runners heading the other, it's not a bad idea to have an extra hand to make sure things are going well.
In the past I've listed top masters results and times. Matias Saari bested his own 40+ age group record with a very good--exceptional actually--2:51:28. Saari three times now, Frank Bonzanich's heretofore legendary 2:58:01 in 1984, and Bob Murphy 2:58:30 in 1995 are the only three* masters runners to break 3:00 on the rugged course).
*I incorrectly reported yesterday that David Dyer was a masters (40+) but oops he's got a few years to go.
For the women Melissa Lewis posted a fine 3:26:58, which is a masters top 3 all time for women, and placed second overall.
Congrats to all the runners out there on Saturday. It was a good day for running.
