Pear "31"




Well it was only the most rain in the history of the PB, but amazingly enough it didn't stop everyone from having an otherwise great run! Rogue Valley Runners Neil Olsen (56:14), Todd Ragsdale (57:32), Hal Koerner (57:41), and John Leuthold (57:46) all finished in the top 10 while Ashland High coach Bob Julian (54:24) earned top valley runner status finishing 3rd. Store employee Chris Rennaker (1:06:46) set a new pr in the atrocious conditions as did Carly Varner (1:23:02). Congrats to all finishers, it wasn't easy.

it rained at Pear Blossom?? I had so much fun I didn't even notice! You all did great! I saw you, Hal, on the turnaround - looking like you were secretly enjoying that pacific northwest weather also! :)

I almost liked the rain- it made it so I didn't have to sweat so much!

Wow! Who is that amazingly handsome young man with the sporting red hair?

As Joe Griffin would say "That was the worst fun I've ever had!".

Also my Pear Blossom PR.

I look forward to many more races as a Rogue Valley Runner.
