28th Annual Jour de Fete

Ste. Genevieve, MO -- August 14, 2010

83 degrees, 96% humidity, and 71° dew point...a perfect morning to run up Maxwell Hill.  Event draws about 150 this year.  Kevin Hammes 3rd overall, myself 5th, and Steve Schmittzehe 6th as gang from down south sweeps the Male 45-49 Division (still one of my favorite post-race photographs).  Shannon Aldridge drops 5:00 minutes off his 2009 time.  FORCE!!  Myself and Kevin Hammes had been subjecting our wives to a heavy dose of racing over the past few weeks, so we took them downtown for a nice lunch and some girl-time at the festival.  Gave us a few extra hours to chat...about running.  Was a great day.
