Week Night Race - Harvard Summer 5K

Almost missed the monthly race series tonight due to threat of rain.
Almost missed beating the field, except my wife, while running too far on the course. Went from first to last after running by the orange cone on the side of the street thinking the turn-around would've been marked clearer.
Finished 23:42 for second place of eight on a hilly course pushing the stroller for 5K. probably ran 3.5M
Received a free cool-max t-shirt for participating, nice people; oh and no entry fee!

Will miss this w/e's USATF-NE XC race:
"Due to unsafe trail conditions caused by the heavy rains from the remnants of the recent hurricane, the Feel Good Farm Trail Races have been cancelled. We regret having to cancel, but we could not find any alternate trails that were safe enough to hold the event. 2 bridges were washed out on the course and a 50 foot long section of the trail is under at least a foot of water. All pre-entrants will have their entry fees refunded by US Mail within 3-4 weeks."
