Gorgeous day. About 25 folks out for the inaugural Shenipsit Old School Half Marathon on a section of trail running from Walker Reservoir in Vernon to Freja Park in Bolton. Lots of Striders out and I think I may have spied Fred Pilon as I was coming back on the out/back course. Still a bit of ice in the low, shady spots, but otherwise quite fine to run on. Took a good digger near the mill pond in Belding on the way back, ripped a finger nail and drew blood on the L arm. Lost the will to chase at that point and settled for 6th place overall, but definitely first old guy... Always helps when there's not that many old guys out there in the first place..
