Sea DogsLike last year, I volunteered at the race rather than running it. For the past couple of days I was (only slightly) regretting having committed to volunteering since I thought that 1 week post-marathon I’d be too sore to want to race a 5k, but I’ve been feeling good and racing would have been fun today.

So was volunteering, though. I got some good photos with my cell phone and I did my part to help things run smoothly, such as running race day registration numbers up to the folks in the press box, helping out with traffic on the course, and helping with results after the race.

While there was no lack of former Dirigo runners, current Dirigo teammates of mine were conspicuously absent today. I only saw 4 total. It was still a pretty quick day, with 6 runners under 16 minutes and another runner just missing it. Curtis Wheeler was the first over the line in 15:16, with Christine Reaser crossing first for the women in 19:00.

Almost 2000 people total ran, with 107 mother/child teams taking part.
