Race recap by Michael Homula

I ran the Ohio Challenge Series Duke Melee 5k at Marlington High School Saturday.  Temperature and weather conditions were ideal for a run. The course was quite a bit more “hilly” than advertised but a nice out and back layout.

I lost several training runs in recent weeks due to a sore hamstring and just every day life/family responsibilities so I was not prepared to throw down the hammer in this race.

I ended up with a time of 21:23 (6:53 per mile pace), finished 6th overall, and 3rd in the 40-49 age group. Yes, there were some fast old dudes in this race.

As always, I am grateful to run as part of Ohio Team-ER and our outstanding group of sponsors.
