Dog Days of Summer
Steve Crowder (Botetourt, VA) stepped to the starting line for the first time in nearly 3 months on Saturday, August 9 at the Dog Days 5K in Staunton, VA. The race was appropriately named as the heat and humidity of Central Virginia confirmed the “dog days” name, while the hilly course added its own challenge. After a 5:20 lead off mile, Steve found himself running alone in third place with two collegiate runners having taken the pace out much more aggressively. Steve held the pace steady to finish in the 3rd place position overall with a time of 16:42.
