July 4, 2001
Tracey Johanson convinced a few of us to run the Lake Forest 5K with her on the 4th of July (even though there were several closer races – Anaheim Hills, Redondo Beach, Huntington Beach) because we might find her good friend Dawnell there. Laura and Chuck also joined us there.
This was a tough 5K. We started downhill (and of course, everyone went out FAST), then we made a U-turn, came halfway back up the hill, turned right, went up another hill, U-turn, back down, right turn and back onto the original street, with an UPHILL finish.
I managed 22:53, but everyone finished under 8:00/mile pace!
