The weather was horrible. About 30 degrees, 10-15 MPH winds and raining fairly hard. It was just plain awful For a few days before my body was just dragging. That on top of a 2pm start , I am surprised I did as well as I did. The afternoon start was tough because it was hard getting food into me beforehand. How much toast? What time? That and all morning I was thinking about the race and started psyching myself out. Not my favorite race, for sure.
