Race Recap...

THE HOT AND HUMID CONDITIONS WERE SO NICE THAT IT SEEMED LIKE EVERYONE RAN A WHOLE LOT SLOWER SO THAT THEY COULD STAY IN THE WOODS LONGER AND ENJOY THE VIEWS, THE ROLLING TERRAIN AND EVEN A FEW DOWN HILLS WORTY OF BEING CALLED "GERONIMO". TEMPS SEEMED TO BE 20 DEGREES COOLER IN THE WOODS...BUT AS THE RUNNERS EMERGED OUT FROM THE WOODS AND REACHED THE FINISH LINE THERE SEEMED TO BE A FLOW OF TALL TALES OF PEOPLE FALLING IN THE WATER AND LOSING THEIR SHOES IN THE MUD... RUNNERS WERE GREETED BY THE SPECTATORS AS THEY ARRIVED AT THE COVETED FINISH LINE AND THE FIRST LUCKY 100 WERE ABLE TO WIPE THEMSELVES OFF WITH THE FINISHER TOWEL THE REST OF US SETTLED FOR A WASHING IN THE RIVER!  ALL IN ALL THE RUNNERS REFLECTED BACK AND PONDERED JUST WHAT IN THE WORLD DID THEY JUST PUT THEMSELVES THROUGH. A COURSE CHANGE DUE TO A CLOSED HISTORIC BRIDGE MADE THE FIRST HALF A LITTLE BIT NASTIER AND EVERYONE KNOWS THAT THE SECOND HALF OF THE MARATHON ALREADY HAS A NASTY REPUTATION WORTHY OF ANY RUNNER WHO FINISHES THAT PORTION OF THE RACE AS A "TOUGH OLD FART!"...AND THAT HALF OF THE MARATHON  CAN BE EVEN MORE BRUTAL IF THE SUN PUTS YOU IN A HEAT BAKE DURING THE OPEN 20 TO 22 MILE STRETCH....

A big congrats and impressive performances go out to the two Overall winners. It was Ben VanHoose (m-28)of Greenville and Melissa Bergeron (f-45) of Norton Shores taking in the overall crowns. Master winners were Michael Nelson (m-42) from Holland, Michigan ran 4:04:02 and Kay Evans (f-40) of Chocowinity, N.C. came in with a 4:57:23. Grand Master machine Dave Minier (m-61) from Wyoming, Michigan ran away with the crown with a time of 4:23:04 and Hammie Farrokhi from Spearfish, South Dakota ran 6:45:27.
