The early morning coolness and the clear blues skies created a misleading optimism that fast times would rule the day. The combination certainly brought a good turnout – over 200 finishers, but the miles were longer on the way back as the temperatures climbed and the fast early paces began taking their toll. Rusty Jones watched the lead pack take off while he settled into an easy pace for the first mile. It did not take him long though to catch the leaders and on the way back he simply powered away for his second straight win and a victory margin of over one minute. Peggy Simpson was even more dominating on the women’s side finishing more than three minutes ahead of the next woman.
This race really is a first class event. The out and back course runs through farm country over picturesque gently rolling hills. The town of Boston is in the middle of a festival and there is lot’s of support for the race. It is a great event to add to your list of things to do!
