Overall: 199/1246
Performance: Good
Course: Looks easier on paper than the real thing. Lots of gradual downhills, but segments of tough uphill climbs, especially at mile 24 when I was pretty beat up. Strong head wind during the entire race (20 -30 mph) was both physically and mentally fatiguing.
Keeping cool Good Drinking Just right
