Despite struggling up the bridge on the way back in to Cincinnati I finished at 51:34 - over ten minutes better than last year's race time of 1:02 something...
Not only that, I passed several former students of mine during the race and wound up finishing ahead of another one that had competed in Columbus, Ohio for the state cross country meet.
Again, go me.
Great event. A little cold and windy to start, but didn't rain during the race, and I ran a personal best.
I am not in this photo below. One reason could be because I probably smoked that guy in the giant green outfit, but the real reason is because it is a photo taken off of the website from the 2005 race in which I did not participate.
Oh, in case you were wondering, the winning time was 30:37. I think I was getting to mile marker 4 at that point.
