Theta Breakers 2003 pics.
Theta Breakers 2003 was a great day for the running club. It was all about sweeping. We swept every team award (top 3 five-person 5k teams, top 3 two-person 5k teams, and top 10k team). We had the top two finishers for the 5k (Jason Detwiler and Matt Tompkins) and numerous other top-race awards for Susan Su, Darcy Dugan, Pratap Ranade, Aaron Mintz, Kristin Schleicher, and several others. Look at the smiling faces. Everyone had a good time. The $100+ prizes won were (rather will be, at the time this was written) used for a team dinner at Compadres that night.

Left: Team Red with their $50 gift certificate to Compadres. (l to r: Susan, Xiao, Andrew, Jason, Matt)
Right: Awwww. Everyone. Except those who left early. But mostly everyone. Never mind.
We got some pretty good times, considering the laid-back nature of the
race and the fact that this was the first large meet of the season.
