Kicking it in!
Sean finished a few minutes later and I thought he might have a top-three spot. Rocky also made it, despite his earlier cramps. We enjoyed some cold Gatorade that was handed out to all finishers.

The awards ceremony took place in the center of town an hour later and it looked like the whole town was there. People came by with cups of wine (+1 for Italy!) and the race director got all the kids who finished on stage to sing the national anthem. All the kids got a nice medal regardless of how they placed. Oddly enough, the race results only showed the places of the top-three age group and overall winners without their finish times (-1 for Italy). No other results were shown. Sean did not make it in the top three. He could have been fourth, but we'll never know.
