Last night was the Masters Challenge 5K at Rockefeller State Park. I was the first running I've done since stopping at mile 58.5 at the Vermont 100 Endurance Run on Saturday night.
It was a fantastic night, weather-wise, to run. But the traffic Gods didn't see fit to make getting there for the actual start a possibility. I found myself running down to the lake from the parking lot - and chasing the "sag wagon" - actually the girl running the course picking up the trail markers once all the runners had passed by! I had to catch and pass her just to benefit from the course markings!
After the race (which, I officially finished in about 30 minutes - factoring in the 5+ minute late start), the participating club teams (Taconic, Rockland, Westchester and Van Cortlandt) celebrated with what could aptly be called a post-race feast! It was way too much food and drink for a 5k - but no one complained - haha :D
