    Ira - sorry! I wanted to but then I was responsible for starting that heat and timing it! Next time for sure.

    I did some calculations using the google pedometer- the course was a 1 mile loop, and the average speed of the best finishers was around 25mph. Pretty good, considering the rough terrain and tight corners.

    The route was (clockwise): Damen(staring/finish @ Carol), Fulton, Leavitt, Hubbard.

    BostonFixed, are you on a mac? If so download VLC. It works great for crap like wmv.

    Maybe over the weekend - I didn't have time to do any rendering for a better format.

    Or lik 3niktac said, use VLC player.

    VLC is awesome to have anyway - makes watching AVI files a cinch without using DIVX Doctor or the like. It doesn't like all .wmv files, but it's doing OK with this one.

    thanks for the race and the video. first time.

    all i have to say is -- training
    and the obvious, my need to lose about 50lbs and get closer to remotely being in shape.
