Recap by Mike Pelletier
The more experienced teams from the North Shore Striders continued to lead the way at the Mill Cities Relay with the Coed Veterans, Women Veterans, and Super Veterans all finishing 4th. The Coed Veterans also beat three other teams to earn 4 points in the club competition. Many thanks to the captains who helped make this happen: Bill, Linda, George, Rosie, Mary, Neil, Art, and Anne.

Congrats to all the participants, whether runners or organizers. I think those of us who run have the easy part: it’s time-limited with a definitive start/finish. You folks who organize are at it for weeks before and for ALL the race’s legs. Thank you for all you do on my and all our behalves. Strider strong, Strider pride.
