Lost in the Crowd . . .

. . . is better than being trampled in the crowd. Given just over 7000 runners were in the Around-the-Bay 30 km race and given that most of them were faster than I am, I chose to be in the back of this crowd. Actually, I am probably not even in this photo yet. Fleur-Ange was on a pedestrian overpass looking for me when she took this photo. She almost missed me but managed to get a photo of my back from the other side of the overpass a bit later.
I finished in 3 hours 47 minutes or 10 minutes faster than three years ago when I was only 65. I felt better than I had in the previous race but was having a bit of vertigo in the morning and during the run so perhaps without that I could have been a bit faster. Not much though.
