On hind sight, I wish I pushed myself harder. At the time, I felt like I was running pretty hard and I was at my 10k race HR.
What would you do differently?:

I should have pushed harder.....

Event comments:

I realized in a sprint that seconds mean MUCH more. I ended up 42nd out of 272 and 9th in my AG out of 30. But looking at the times, 4 of my AG'ers were within about 1 min of my time. If I could have just pushed harder on the run, I could have been 4 out of 30 in my AG. I would have also move up about 10 spots overall.

I am glad with my results, but disapointed that I could have done better if I would have pushed just a little harder.

However, I'm happy that a 6'8" 230# guy can get around with the best of them!

I wish they had a Clydesdale division! I think I could have done well since I was competitive in my AG.
