Carpooled with Matt from the Park n Ride. Very rainy, very muddy. Probably one of the muddier ones. Slow first climb due to the mud. Let a couple people slip by on the second climb to the dark side. Held my own through the dark side, amazingly and caught a couple people on the way back to the start/finish. Held my spot until the turn-around after the last climb, and got passed by two guys, but reeled a couple more in very strong on the finish. Awesome day. Left my kefir bottle behind.
