CMS studs Scott Leslie, Dave Brooks, and Tom Steele were in the house. I ran with Tom in the early miles as we were 3rd and 4th respectively. He pulled away into mile 2 but I almost got back on his heels at the top of the hill into mile 4. Then we had the fast skates on the downhill into 5 miles. I lost some time to him there but it was still my fastest mile of the day and only one under six minutes. We both got passed by a WPI runner before we got on Main Street as we finished 4th and 5th respectively.
The rest of the night included a cool down with the CMS guys, reconnecting with Krissy, and attending the post race party which Stephen Laska and Kim Gordon rolled out to us.
