The course was a true cross-country route~hills and mud! The SU men ran a smart race and when all the runners had crossed the finish line, SU had a 4 point win over Louisville (that would be a good win in basketball, too!!). Corey ran well, finishing 7th for the team, and passing 2 other runners just at the finish line. We all enjoyed seeing him run again, because we do not get that chance very often anymore. The grandparents were all real troupers, dealing with cool, windy conditions, with lots of walking and standing, but I think their cheering kept them warm!
We stayed for the awards ceremony and then drove 4 miles to the German restaurant that I like, where we had a delicious lunch.
Here are a few photos from today's race. Enjoy.

Hope all is well.
