The home opener for Principia College cross country started late on a Friday afternoon. The day was a hot one. Too hot in fact to start the race on time. The start of the women’s race was delayed a half hour but that did little to drop the temperature. It was hot. The course is hilly and a tough one which caused more than a few runners to walk a bit of the course back behind the trees. I am just glad I was not running. Hard enough to run from the start back to the hill part of the course for the shots I got.
