Makin' Tracks on the way to the Quad Cities (C'mon ride the train.... choo choo train)

On Saturday morning Ben, Phlip, Matt, Verdo and I all made the trip to Forest Park, no Lake Forest, no Park Forest, no Lake Park... or whatever the suburb is called that hosts the Makin' Tracks 5k circuit race. Virdo crushed us all at 16:25, which was good enough for 4th overall. Phlip managed a new pr at 17:49 which was impressive on a humid morning. I continued my tradition of losing the 1st spot in my age-group to a person whom I gave a ride to the race (Verdo).

Sunday morning Phlip, Michael, Verdo, Ken and myself all headed to the Quad Cities Marathon to surprise Paul as he ran. We met up with his fiance, and our friend Claudia at mile 11. Paul finished 2nd in his age group and ran a 3:05. Also, many of us took our first ever steps into Iowa. Iowa spelled backwards is AWoiESOME.
