Race Recap By Michael Homula:

Last night, I ran the Ohio Challenge Series First Crush 5 Miler at Breitenbach Winery in Dover. First, the people with EnMotive Ohio and the Ohio Challenge Series did another amazing job putting on this race.

The starting line view of the surrounding rolling hills was amazing and the course was a rolling and challenging course through some beautiful countryside. The first 2.7 or so mile were almost exclusively up hill with a steep and challenging hill from about 1.75 to 2.7 miles. Those hills took their toll for sure.

I finished in 35:37 (7:08 pace), 4th overall and 1st in my age group. The goal was to go under 36:00 but I secretly hoped to break 35:00. Given the challenge of the hills I am very pleased with the outcome.
