What an awesome race - I really do love this race. Of course there are multiple reasons for it, but today was excellent.
I started off at a fast but decent pace and quickly found my spot behind the #4 runner. I past him on the first hill, and then I was running by myself the rest of the way.
The hills are absolutly killers, but you just gotta kinda grin and bear it. I wanted to get under 25:00, but got a 25:22. Not exactly where I wanted to be, but I am very pleased with it.
Following the race I stood still a bit too long talking and my calves started to tighten up. A little walking and I was good to go.
I will blog more about this later today at my blog http://blog.262quest.com
