I'm going to take a short break from thinking about the Olympics to mention a welcome result from the world of Road Racing.
NNHS, Arkansas, and New Mexico alum Chris Barnicle finished 14th (3rd American) at the Falmouth Road Race on Sunday, running 33:29 (4:47 per mile). Barnicle was 15 seconds behind Luke Puskedra (first American), and 5 seconds ahead of old rival Sean Quigley. You can see Barnicle, in black New Balance singlet, just to the left of Puskedra (Oregon) in the photo above.
Great to see Chris running well.
