The run was great and I enjoyed the company. It was great to get to know Gary better and he's a really entertaining guy with a lot of positive energy. He had some great stories to tell which made for a fun run.
We began to see the front pack runners as they were about three miles into the run and after a while we saw Mary, Erin, Christine and Kate, all looking great and having fun despite going up a pretty tough climb (while we were subsequently enjoying the downhill).
We soon finished, changed and cheered for the runners as they finished. Kate ended up rocking the race, coming in at 2:21 and crushing her old PR by 21 minutes! Super proud of her! Here's a pic of her shortly after the finish:
