Nothing, somehow I recognized Chris M at the start. It was nice to meet a fellow BT'er in person.

  • 9.32 miles
  • 09m 43s  min/mile

I run here a bit so I know how steep it gets at places. I knew we had about 2 miles up hill and then we would be on a single track for a while with not much room for passing so I wanted to find a like paced group. I took it ease but settled in behind a nice line of people pushing it just a bit.

At mile 5 the race really began. I settle in with a group and we pushed each other quite well. Passed a lot of people in the last mile as the group I was in were doing sub 6 min mile down the hill.

This was my first Xterra and I thought maybe I could break 1:30 on this course. A lot of obstacles on the run. Over logs, under branches, hair pin turns with huge drop along side. This was so cool! Over 2000 feet of climbing.
