Photos: Inland Trail Marathon
Runners enjoyed favorable fall weather, sunny and clear 40s with light breeze, at the Inland Trail Marathon on Sunday in Elyria, OH. Andrea enjoyed the half marathon as a training run. The day was my turn to cheer and spectate, as well as get in a few easy miles and take pictures. This diabolically straight course -- an out-and-back on a straight bike path for 12.5 miles, with a half mile on road -- produced fast times. I witnessed a few PRs out there.
