Comments from Barbara Statton
The course for the Cherry Blossom race, is held on a beautiful closed circuit 2.2 miles in length, in a park. The race was an early riser, 8am. We had a small field about 13 on the line. I started off at the front, this lasted for about 1/4 of the way around. I moved back into the pack a bit, then the hard attack happened, which sent me out the back. Andy was able to stay in with the main group, she fought the wind and race hard finishing up in 7th, I finished up in 11th.
