But it was apparent that I was not going to find the person who had left this bag in the masses of humanity exiting the buses in the toll plaza.

We even got Twittered .Lucky13Queen got a PR!
The new kids on the block liked our Hot chocolate. Your are welcome South Brooklyn Runners
Tracy improved her pace by a minute per mile. YEA!
Michelle wanted to see how far she could go without walking, so she ran 3 more miles.
Scott ran a perfectly executed race!
To Badwater still made it to the Jet's game after the race
Daniel had his "fastest race over 3.5 miles ever." Good for you!
The Brooklyn Beast had a bonding experience with Beast Jr.
Early Morning Run did not hear our pre-race announcements (note to self - We need a bigger PA system next year)
Morissey returned to shave a minute of of his time from last year!
The Wellness Wire thins that arm warmers will be a trend among non-elite runners.
Dumbo Books of Brooklyn came out just to watch and took some great photos
Nick Berra thought our course was mostly flat. He also finished 8th. At that speed he probably just did not notice the hills, or the lake, or the trees.
Beth shattered her "stretch goal"
