separated by a few hours, the pumpkin chase 5k in new canaan was the second race of the day following the wilton halloween hustle 5k. the pumpkin chase was also the opportunity for us to celebrate rob's birthday - with a cake and beer to supplement the pumpkin pie and cider at the finish line!
plenty of familiar faces there: emmy, rob, kate, john, roy, dan, jim, karen, gail, ronnie, tommy, luis, dawn, erin (who was the first woman overall!), bob, and dana - to mention just a few! my 21:39, 6:58 pace, for the half trail, half road, course was a minute+ faster than the morning 5k (and even a few seconds faster than i ran the 2009 edition).
here are the race results.
