Race Review By Ken Frankenbery:

Another Covid race with small waves sent out every minute. 170 racers in 10 waves, I was in wave 5. Temp was mid 70’s & windy- decent conditions, course was hillier than I expected. It looped around several lakes, but also worked through some neighborhoods with classic homes- great scenery.
My last race was burned into my memory ( getting second place by 1 second-but never seeing my competitor), so it helped motivate me to push my max the entire race . I ended up 15th Overall, 1st in my age group, and had a time of 45:32 , a 7:20 pace.
They had an award for Master Champion ( over 50 ), I noticed they awarded it to a 50 year old who was a minute slower than I was. I asked, and the Promotor was honest and said she assumed no one over 60 would be in contention for award so never checked my time so they missed me.  Since she already gave award out- ( it was a local she knew) said she would mail me another one.
It didn’t matter to me as I was just happy to be racing!
