|I estimated 1200-1300 people at the mass start.|
Over 1000 people show up now, which gives me a warm fuzzy feeling. More folks equals more for the food bank.
|There is a huge contingent of walkers.|
|The 5k course follows a bike path and dirt trail through a golf course.|

A cold front was sweeping into the Champlain Valley so a strong southerly wind blew us to the end. We cranked hard in the granny gear on the return trip. Put your head down and spin away. I mentioned how neat it would be to bring minimal gear with our boys and spend the night. I was thinking about springtime, but the seed was sown in my husband's mind. He plans to try it this fall. Brrr!
