The New Albany Walking Classic was held today. And as promised it was a great event! How Phil can even control the weather, I’ll never know.
There were somewhere around 1,600 walkers at this year’s 10K. The first male, Matt Boyles from Yellow Springs, OH, finished in about 50 min. (That is about an 8-min. mile.) It was almost 5 min. before the next walkers crossed the finish line.
The first woman finished under 60 min., though I did not get her name. (Sorry about that.)It was great seeing lots of friends like Bob from Texas, all of the people from WV and og course the Buckeye Striders. Thanks so much for stopping by to say hello!
Congrats to Larry Smith who barely beat out his nemesis, Rob Crouse. It was close to the finish and exciting to watch you guys compete!
Congrats and thanks, Phil! It was a lot of fun and I appreciate your letting us be involved! (174)
