Larry Taylor sweeps the streets of Jane Lew, WV
Whatever type of guy 'ole General Lightburn was, I doubt that he rose early in the morning to strap on his hobnail boots and head out for a jog (but I could be wrong). Runners headed out to Jane Lew to compete in seperate 1 mile and 5 kilometer events - both with a 1/4 downhill start and no significant uphill climbs. The weather was on the perfect side with nary a cloud in the sky and temps in the 60-70 degree range. Larry Taylor attacked the courses with a vengence, winning both the 1 mile and 5K events but missed breaking the 5K record for the course by 8 seconds.
