Running the Bele Chere 5k – Asheville, North Carolina, July 28 2007

This is one of the big races every year in Asheville.  It’s approaching 1,000 runners.  It was a rainy Saturday morning which makes for a tricky start — wet ground, crowded field — a few people wiped out.

A couple of short but challenging hills in the first half of the race.  But once you pass mile two it’s smooth sailing flat and slightly downhill.  I didn’t break 22 minutes but came close — 22:11.
