TAF Racing stole the show at the Great Raleigh Road Race this morning. After days on end of ridiculous heat and humidity, the weather finally cooperated this morning, and it showed! From the start, it was total TAF domination. Oyler and Laurel worked together for the first bit of the race. Marty and Tim also ran as a duo, Jennifer and Rita were unstoppable, and Dave and I pushed each other up one of the many hills in the middle miles. Joe Miller was also out volunteering... I know his cheering helped me up the hill as we rounded the final corner onto Hillsborough St.
In the end, Laurel and Jennifer finished up as the 2nd and 3rd women respectively. Oyler was 3rd on the Master's side. We also added some age group wins to our column - Rita and I were 1st, Dave was 2nd, and Marty was 3rd. I'm not sure if Tim placed in his age group... he should have because he ran a really good race (did I mention that this was his 4th race in 7 days... that's just insane)! Mark from the TAF Half Marathon Training Program also joined us... it was a GREAT day. CONGRATS everyone, we sure did earn those festive green shirts! #20
