Just as we were considering the fantastic girls race that we had just witnessed, the boys introductions were being done. 
Peter Henkes, the Midwest regional FootLocker meet director for the past 29 years, told me that Grant Fisher could be a real tough one today. I always consider the Midwest runners to be some of the toughest runners in Foot Locker national races. 

But this race started out very, very slow and with 40 runners in contention at the first mile, one just knew that we were looking for a really tough finish! 

And the FootLocker course is set up for a great rush over the finish...

Experiencing the Food & Nutrition Expo at the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetic Association’s annual convention is an eating adventure!
