     Tonight was the coldest night that this RD ever directed a road race - just recovering from the cold that I was coldah than four frozen mudslides and a blonde name Suzy - yes it was that cold:>)

     Small cozy crowd tonight....3 degree weather will do that even when one is hosting the great Belayneh Dinsamo of Addisabba, Ethiopia. Those who attended got to run alongside Belayneh and then later sit down to some great Ethiopian food and Ethiopian music. Belayneh worked the room like a real pro stopping by every table to say hello, answer question and pose for pictures.
