Pretty interesting race. I started at a 5:40 pace. At about 2km in I started to get shin splints and slowed to a 7:00. At the 5km turnaround Someone said it was all downhill. I hadn’t even noticed the slight incline. I took the downhill at a 6:00 pace and did the last 2km at 5:30. I even sprinted the finish and knocked off some victims I had been stalking. So what looked like a disaster turned out ok. 55 min I think. All this despite the burgers and beer last night. Think I’ll go celebrate and eat some more burgers!
