Drove 2 hours to get to Cedar Rapids. My 15min of buffer room was eliminated right away as there were police right before the interstate entrance. This wouldn't have been too bad except there were no streets nearby that went under I35, so I had to drive all the way to the next entrance.
Anyway, I thankfully got enough time to hit the bathroom and felt surprisingly good to start and finish the run. Drew, Chase, and I hit up Sac and Fox, which was soggy but not enough to ruin our strides. Good talk and pace the whole time.
