5k in South Park

Boston Harvest Report:
     I decided to give online registration a try for the Boston Harvest 5k/10k this year.  We are already at 9 people and still 5 months out.  Most people will sign up in August/September.  I have a good feeling that we can beat last years number of runners.  We are also up to 50 sponsors now.  With the really awesome addition of Little Caesars in White Oak. "Pizza-Pizza".
Now the Race Report:
     This weekend's race was called Pittsburgh Officers Down 5k and was held in South Park.  I thought this was going to be like the other South Park races I have done and be on the road.  It was not.  It was a hilly trail race.  Surprise!  I was not pacing myself, so I had a little bit of trouble this time.  The first 1/2 mile was around a track, then up an old road for a quarter mile, then dropped us in the woods.  It was fun, but it was also difficult.  After mile 2 it was down hill trail, I was flying and almost took out the guy in front of me several times.  After that it was 1 more time around the track.  I finished in 21:54.  Still a good time.  5th place overall, 3rd in age group.
      Where is the medal in the picture?  The race director forgot to bring them...   They will be mailed...
