Pre-race routine:

drive over to twin creek

ten minutes of jogging , finding a secluded copse of mini pines and peeing ( penis>vagina for woodland peeing )
  • 56m 26s
  • 6.55 miles
  • 08m 37s  min/mile

went out slower on purpose and the race went better than my previous strategy of flying two miles and biting it the rest of the race. I was doing great but I didnt have appropriate footwear. I left my screw shoes at home because I am dumb. I really had to be careful on the downslopes - I almost Sonny Bono'ed myself a few times going down the trails. I fell once trying to go up a muddy upslope. I was able to really burn it up the final upslope and catch two people.
What would you do differently?:

bring my screw shoes for better traction
Post race
Warm down:

grab a water and animal crackers , cheer on a few folks and leave to get to the kids elementary school carnival.

What limited your ability to perform faster:


Event comments:

like the trail course - the first half is very challenging with ascents/descents - the second half is relatively flat but muddy along the flood plain with a nice 1/4 mile uphill finish - it was great to run in a thunderstorm
