today was the inaugural hudson valley 15k in blooming grove, new york. my friend todd was instrumental in putting this challenging race together, i love his description of the course (from the race flyer):
"Make no mistake, and listen to no one who says otherwise - this course has hills! A daunting one at mile 2, and at least two other "testers" further along the route. But the majority of the course is extremely picturesque, enough so that one might momentarily forget about the hills every once in a while."
it had the hills and the beauty - and great weather too. i finished in 1:08:31, a 7:21 pace.
here is my race report.
here are the official results from coolrunning.
