Hills Are Alive 10K first hill panorama
I'm not running the Hills Are Alive 10K this morning, but I know a couple of guys who are participating in the race...so I've decided to watch the start from here
Howlett Trail (looking towards the start/finish)
The Hills Are Alive 10K 2016
I spot the two runners I know, Erik and John, as they climb the first hill of the course
I head to the finish line, but it has been relocated to the other side of the park. Hopefully this is a temporary thing because I really like finishing on a descent...and orbiting the park seems like it would just extend the pain.
I miss snapping a photo as the first place runner crosses the finish line. I hope I don't make the same mistake with John or Eric!
Here comes John!
Damn, he was fast!
Erik is just a couple of minutes behind him...and still way faster than I have ever done this course
When I recorded video of the start, I did not recognize him quickly enough to cheer him on, but can you blame me? I haven't seen him since we played Little League baseball...and John was right behind him!
