Got stung by a wasp 1.3 miles into the race along with a few other people. Stopped hurting after a mile or two. This was such a fun race. Never got bored. Tough, but I knew it wasn't going to be easy. Paced myself pretty well, finished tired, but knew I could do better next time. Can't wait to do it again.
What would you do differently?:

Lots of hills.

Disappointed that the post race food wasn't going to start for another hour after I finished. Had to leave before that so I could drive to Brainard.

I can train for half marathons on pavement and on trails, but as soon as I change it up to gravel or loose dirt my knee swells and the pain it causes is unreal. Any ideas why this happens?
