Twenty-eight brave souls showed up on a hot humid day for a run over a tough hilly course.  It was so hazy, the air could be seen.  The main decisions for the day were the type of stroke to use for the slog.   Most of the participants chose either the breaststroke or the backstroke.  The times were slower than usual because of the weather, but the runners had a challenge and an opportunity to socialize during the run if they chose.  Some of the up and coming younger runners showed their potential and finished well.  Mile Becker, Eddie Russman, and Luke Russman showed us the high quality of the young runners of tomorrow.
