The second Sunday of April and the Doyle's 5 miler is always a welcome sign that spring is here. The race starts late enough that runners can get a good night's sleep, and the weather is suddenly sunny and 60 degrees, leaving the unprepared runner with their first tan lines of the season (or sunburn in some cases).
This year's race was no different. Adding to the enjoyment of the day was the first time presence of an FHR tent at the race and our friend Paul Gennaro winning the day in 26:00 mins flat! It was a great day to be a Forest Hills Runner!
