E Streeters supporting the troops at Mine Falls, in Nashua, N.H., showing up to support the armed services for a 5K trail run. For some among us, it was an early bell after a raucous night of country music.
After signing in, it was time for a fantastic rendition of the National Anthem, complete with honor guard. And no, it wasn't Mike Mahone.
Andrew sizing up his competition at the start. In this case, that meant two runners, since he finished third overall in the race. Surely that kind of finish warrants a medal!

In fact, the E Streeters took five of the top 20 spots for this race! That warrants an ass-kicking pose.
Little did we know that after the race, we'd be feted with a feedbag courtesy of the Texas Roadhouse. Pulled pork, barbeque chicken, corn, slaw, and potato salad! A perfect buffet to negate our run, but more than enough to keep Andrew a happy man.

Finally, post-race, it's medal time, and Barry is ready to claim his. Sadly, though, it was not meant to be, a slight that will live in infamy in E Streeter running history. There's always next year, guys.
