Today’s header photo is from yesterday’s Cherry Blossom 10 Mile. We missed about 20 people in this team photo, but it was cold and windy and several people needed to get going, so we couldn’t wait any longer to shoot it. As I pointed out on the CAR Facebook Page, it was a good weekend for our CAR team, especially our masters group with Marty McCormick (1st 40-44 AG), Philippe Rolly (1st 50-54 AG) and Mike Sinisi (3rd 60-64 AG) leading the way for our masters men and Cris BurbachTisha Wheeler and Daryle Lademan all picking up top 10 AG finishes for our masters women. Ari Brose won the women’s 60-64 AG at Saturday’s Cherry Blossom 5k. Go CAR!

We had about 50 CARs in action this past weekend at the Cherry Blossom races. With so many people racing, I didn’t have time to research who ran PRs, so my apologies for failing to note that for any of you who had PRs this weekend.
