If I'm not mistaken. Brian Peterson won, with Chris Gardner second and Jim Ramacier first guy over 40 (and he won Chippewa outright last week!). Eve Rembleski was under 4 hours, with Kim Holak about 15 minutes behind her.
It was good to see a lot of familiar faces - even Bill P.'s - and to meet a few people who know me only through this blog. I ran a loop of the course with Lisa (wildknits) after doing a bit extra, chasing back and forth along the course, trying to spy out the leaders.
It was a great day, if a bit cool at the start. The ever-changing course excluded the ski hill again, so it was a relatively fast course as well. People have me questioning my retirement, but part of me says I would've run well today, part says I would've been hurt about half-way and all of me wonders if I could pound myself into condition in time for the Superior 50K in 4 weeks.
