Rogue Trail Series

Overall Rank = 2/90
Age Group = M35-39
Age Group Rank = 2/9
Pre-race routine:

Had breakfast and rode out with Tony to the venue.
Event warmup:

Did 1 mile easy with some pick ups.
  • 50m 25s
  • 6.25 miles
  • 08m 04s  min/mile

Not an experience trail runner at all, so just wanted to push without blowing up and not fall. Went out pretty hard with a pack of 4, sitting in 3rd place. Guy in the front faded back and the 3 of us all overtook him. First place guy got a gap when I got stuck behind runners from the 30K, but honestly it was for the best, I was cooked. The guy in 3rd really never let me relax, always just within earshot, so I just get the pressure on and didn't give any opportunities away.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing, very fun!

Warm down:

Walked around a bit waiting for Tony to finish. Missed him when I went to get sunglasses - he was much faster than he predicted!

What limited your ability to perform faster:


Event comments:

Really glad I found this for my trip to Austin.
