Wow, that was a lot of hills! I could really fly down but in the back of my mind was, "I have to run back up this!" The views were awsome though. Gave me something else to think about at times. :-)

Event comments:

Good race for being a last-minute decision to race. I was a little worried when Dave and I couldn't find a map to the race start, but the event was very well put-on and had lots of support and volunteers. For a small race, I was really impressed.
