Woke up with a still stiff neck/shoulders and debated on just staying in bed...

Started off conservative on the downhill with only 1 female in front of me. Figured I would catch her on the flats.

Flattened out and started to work on closing the gap. Closed in with about a mile left, but didn't want to make my move until we were a little closer to the finish so we wouldn't have to sprint the last mile.

Sprinted the last quarter mile and ended up about 2 seconds behind her. She started a few seconds behind me so my finish time was about 8 seconds behind her.... glad I didn't beat her by 2 seconds only to find out that I really didn't beat her.

Should have moved past her sooner. The end came up sooner than I thought it would.

About 45 seconds slower than I was last year.

Great job! That seems like a fast group of finishers for a small race like this.
