Once again, it was no spring picnic for runners in Fairbanks this morning. Morning temperatures were in the mid-teens, but there was bright sunshine reflecting off our snow. John Heirmel won the hilly 5K with a time of 17:10, followed by Ben Mercer at 17:25 and Marius Hjelle at 17:26. Jane LeBlond won the women's race with a time of 19:59; Alison Meadow was second at 20:11, and Michelle Mitchell third 20:30.. Even though this year's race is a week later than last years, the geese still have not yet returned to Fairbanks.
The last runner to 'beat Beethoven'.
... uh ... exactly HOW do you have that number attached .....
