Folks running the Rockville Twilighter sped by yesterday, under clear skies and cooling breezes.
The Howard County Striders men raced splendidly, with Weems McFadden running 30:58 and John Chall running 31:45. Weems sported the HCS singlet, John had a nifty headband, and they were the 5th and 6th Masters, respectively.
Special congratulations to Carlos Renjifo, who achieved 14th place out of over 1100 runners, and fifth in his age group. He also ran a PR of 25:50 (Great job!). The results can be found here: http://mcrrc.org/racing/2011/Twilighter-Men-8K.html
Videos can be found, as always, on the Howard County Striders' YouTube Channel.

The official finishing video from the race can be found on the Running Maryland website! You can see Carlos around 1:45, and hear his girlfriend cheering in the background. :oD (Thanks to Pekka for the link! ^_^)
On a bonus note, here's a conversation that we overheard between a little girl and her dad:
Girl: Daddy, Daddy, guess what?
Girl: (pointing to Carlos): Daddy, did you know that that guy has abs?
Dad: Dear, you would have to be blind to not see the six-pack on that guy.
We did not see any vampires at the TWILIGHT-er, but we do encourage everyone to see the new Harry Potter movie. :oD
