Comments:

Realized I needed to go to the bathroom again right before the start. Thought maybe I'd be okay, but had to stop between mile 4-5. Caught a root at mile 3ish and hit the ground. Only fall of the day. Fuel belt was giving me all kinds of issues, then I finally realized I was wearing it backwards, and it was fine after that. Stopped at the car after the first loop to take off the leg warmers and use the bathroom. Had a pretty good 2nd loop. Stopped after the 2nd loop to ditch the arm warmers and use the bathroom again. 3rd loop is on a different trail. There was a bit more water on this loop. Stepped in a puddle that I couldn't get around and got the shoes really wet. Then came to another puddle that I went around, but got caught in a briar bush. Got passed in the last mile by 2 friends, but made up for it by passing 3 other people.

Not much to do afterwards, but since you are in a park, you can just hang out and drink some beer. Hung out for 3 beers and then headed home.
