Runners start the Mission 10 Miler Sunday morning near Harry Grove Stadium.

With the sun barely above the eastern horizon Sunday morning, Troy Jordan bent over towards his neon-colored running shoes to stretch his hamstrings.

The 56-year-old Frederick resident said the cold temperatures were perfect for him. This would be his first Mission 10 Miler. With the urging of the race emcee, Jordan moved toward the starting corral to stand among the dozens of other runners.
