My first race of my modern era, and I was a little disappointed in my time. I thought there was a snowballs chance of breaking 20 minutes, but come on, I have only been running here for a few weeks. The course was pretty fast, but I did learn that you MUST drive the course beforehand if you can. At one point I took a right hand turn and saw a huge hill that I had to run down. I also saw people coming back up it on the other side. I wish I would have known that beforehand. It was a brutally steep (yet blessedly short) hill.
The food afterward was great, a fantastic start to my ‘new’ running phase.
