Epic muddy course. I felt I had a very good pace throughout. My knee needed some negotiation, but didn't bother me much at all. I don't think I beat it up and was able to tackle the downhill agressively without pain after 2nd summit. Climbs were no problem for the hips at all. On the final stretch I used a pulsing motion to carry me forward in the muddiest sections that was just amazing. I passed people using the upper body launch from each pulse, and somehow made the rebound of the mud work for me. It was magical. Had a real tough mindset in the last 500 meters, where I brought some jiu-jitsu mindset to the race. I don't think I've done it quite that way before. Sat in a stream to clean off, temps in the 40's and already drenched. Seem to have survived. So much fun!
