Post race
Warm down:

Walked around for a few minutes, ate a banana and got in the car for the long drive home

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Nothing. This went much better than expected and I felt great the whole way. Couldn’t have gone any faster

Event comments:

Good smaller race, especially given the Covid precautions. I may put this one back on my list to do every year despite the drive.
