NSIM 9.17.2016

Saturday's running of the North Shore Inline Marathon was met with misty and drippy weather, but was not a wash out. At the front, an elite pack of ten skaters pulled away from the field, but at a much slower pace than usual. The big pack made for a close finish, and it took awhile to sort out the results. Eventually Justin Stelly was declared the victor as three skaters cross the line with the same time.
