Such a difficult course.
What would you do differently?:

Post race
Warm down:

Not much. Excited about my finish. Always do a Hammer Recoverite post-race drink.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Started cramping 1/2 mile before the end. Got passed , near the finish, by a guy who started in the Clydesdale group 2 minutes behind me.

Event comments:

MOAB picked up the race when another sponsor dropped it. MOAB did a wonderful job of presenting this race.

I was stoked to end the season with a 4th place in Sport class! Yeah, there was a DNF or two in front of me, but still, I gave this race my absolute best!
