Trail slowed me down this year. Felt comfortable, just couldn't get the legs to turn over on the trail.
Post race
Warm down:

stretch, drink water, wait for the wife to finish.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

my fat ass...

Event comments:

My progression is coming along pretty good from where I had been. Would like to see what I can do if I can get my weight down (still hovering around 235lbs.). Weather was actually good for this race, usually we have rain, wind, or both. Last year for the race unless someone else puts it on next year, hate to see another hometown race disappear.
