More details later... the goal was to beat 55 minutes. My time... 55:53. A personal best for a 10k sooooo close.
Some pictures from today:
Me and Dad pre-race. This was his 29th race, my 2nd. My first one was 10 years ago. His was in 1979. WOW. Not too bad for 72.
Dad and his walking buddy, Steve, pre-race.
My view from the start. Note the wall to wall people.
Shortly after the finish. Still wall to wall people.
The crowd outside the Mich Ultra party as I am trying to find my Dad.
Enjoying some of the party food.
And a good time was had by all....
As we were leaving the Michelob Ultra party after having our fill of burgers, BBQ and beer. There were still people crossing the finish line at 10:15 - close to 3 hours after the start. If you are in one of the time corrals in back, it is close to an hour after the gun goes off before you even cross the start line. Insane numbers of people.
