AM Race:

Very hilly (mostly climbing) race through Clifty Falls State Park in Madison, IN.  Not trail running, but mostly uphill.  About 200 people, but nobody I really knew showed up.  I won by about a minute, so it was probably one of the weakest fields I have seen.  1st place overall, by myself the whole way - about 1 minute ahead of 2nd, I think.  First race win for me, so tht felt good.  The race organizers start the awards and hop right in to age group awards, and I realize as they read my name for first place M30-39, that they actually have no overall awards :( !?!

Yeah - first time winning, and they don't even acknowledge it! :(  I got a non-specific medal with their race name on it.  Oh well - I'll take the moral victory all the same.  We're not running for the glorious $1.50 medals for awards, but it would've at least been nice to be acknowledged as the race winner.  I guess that's why no good guys were at this race.
