Don't you just love a great street party. My neighbours throw the best there is. Well, if I am to be truthful, it was the sixth race of the series. It was held on Saturday morning and started ten kilometres away in Elmira, Ontario, which is most famous for it huge one day Maple Syrup Festival in April. You can read more about the festival in my earlier post.
While this stage is a common distance of 10 km, it is run as a time trial, slowest runner starts first, each minute another runner starts , until the fastest runner who starts last. Best part of this race is that it ends right in front of my house. Oh wait, it ends in front of the race director's house, which is across the street from my house.
That is the finish line.
Yep, that's my house in the background.
After finishing up marshalling a stop light(the runners didn't have to stop for the light, but quite a number of drives had to wait even on a green for the runners to pass by) at the 1km mark, I raced home to work on food, but since the finish line and the crowd blocked my driveway, I safely parked on the next street.
I liked this image of a few of the 20 or so Gatorade jugs that my neighbour uses in his many races.
