Pre-race routine:

Made the drive down with Danielle. Always tricky to know what/when to eat for an evening event.
Event warmup:

Half mile jog around the start area.
  • 53m 40s
  • 14 kms
  • 03m 50s  min/km

The leaders took off, and I hung in the chase pack, a group that slowly dwindled once we started the long climb. One young man stayed with me as we eventually pulled away from the rest. I sensed this young guy would out kick me at the end, so I figured my best bet was to drop him before we started the long descent. It worked well, as I kept the pace on the downs and was able to cruise to the finish. That last steep hill would've been tough to battle it out on!
