Comments:

The race was chilly! I was afraid I'd be too hot, but was just right in tights, an extra long sleeve shirt and gloves. The extra pair of socks was great.

The run was fun, but I was slow by :20/mile, and have no idea why. It was a great run on a nice route. I should have been on the heels of my buddy Mark who I work out with, and who was a minute faster, but he caught me, passed, and disappeared. It's a mystery.
Post race
Warm down:

Chatting with the running club and cheering our finishers. We all got little Oscar trophies and pink lemonade in champagne glasses. A fun time with the crew.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I have zero idea. The legs just didn't work, so I'll ramp up bike and run volume hoping for the best.

Event comments:

A great race for its first year. RD Molly does great work.

Here are the results.
