DCRRC Handicap 4mi. Carderock MD, on C&O canal. 8:16am. New age group this year so a better handicap but still back in the pack at 31rst. 33 seconds faster than last year but only 5th in age group. Just like last week I had two of my competition finish within 15 seconds ahead of me but could not catch them. The two from last week, however, were behind me this week.
This was the 3rd race of the summer series and I will miss the next one for square dancing so barring a total collapse by the leaders, I do not have much chance of placing.

4th of July Parade. Washington DC. 11:45am. Capitol Squares were square dancing in the parade. Made up the distance and time since I measured neither. Did almost as much walking to and from the subway getting there and back.
