Fratini and Hutchinson in the Rain

     Perfect night for racing.  Cool temperatures and plenty of rain.  What more could one ask for.  The Park was virtual empty, most sane folks spending this night indoors.  However 20 !!!!!!!! (pick your own adjective!) turned up to race in these sodden conditions.
    Paul Fratini led from the go and cruised the many puddles and water hazards to take victory.  Followed home equally comfortably by masters victor John Bigos.  Tim Brown rounded out the top three.
     On the womens side it was a different affair as Laura Hutchinson and Sara Praglusk traded step for step along the whole course.  This outcome was not decided until the sprint for the finish, were it not for the keen eyes of race director Len and spotter Brian, this may have needed a photo to determine the outcome.  The spoils went to Laura, Sara settling for 2nd and Deb Berovici rounding out the top three.  The latter holding off masters runner Betsy Duquette for that honor.
