Race Recap - Rindge Le Tour De Common 10K

I've got a Love/Hate relationship with the course for the Rindge Le Tour de Common. They named it after the mountainous Le Tour de France for a reason!  We're not talking a flat course here.  To make matters worse, it starts at the top of a hill (just to get you going too fast from the gun!), takes a turn then some how manages to go uphill more than the downhill (ok, maybe not, but it sure feels that way).  Heck, most of the race is run on Todd Hill Road!  Ok, I apparently hate the course, but the race is easy to enjoy.  It's small (less than 100 runners), extremely well organized, and well marked.   Plus we got tech shirts including kids sizes for the boys (super awesome!) and a nice post run spread (there was this orange colored bread that was super tasty).
