Look at the green grass even! There's not even any snow in Cazenovia this year. It was a balmy 38 degrees and the sun was shining.
Alex had a great race. This is at about the 1 mile mark. It was nice that we got to see the runners pass by during the race.
And here he is heading towards the finish line. He placed 15th overall, out of over 1,100 runners. Not too shabby! He was just "using the run as a workout"... (If you'd like to see the results, you can see them here.)
I think his workout was a good one, he looks a little tired!
After the race, we walked over to Cazenovia College for a Chili Cook-off. Since Alex finished so quickly, we were one of the first ones to arrive. It wasn't crowded at all.
There were about 20 chili's to taste, including one from the fire department.
It got crowded pretty quickly, and the line at the door was half way down the block when we left. It was a really neat event, I'm glad we went! And I'm SO very glad it wasn't snowing... I hear in past years the snow has been so bad you could barely see 2 feet in front of you.
