Boy's & Girls Club 5K Race Recap:

Got a nice 2.63 mile warm up with Anton Bodourov and learned more about the machine that is Anton.
Cooled down 2.5 miles in true Team Schmitz fashion by running back against the finishing runners for a mile and rooting on the running community while seeing lots of familiar faces.
Then home to make a 20lb Turkey Dinner - See Photos.
