Each race is a learning experience and this one was no different. The lesson this time, to double knot my shoe laces. I had to stop and re-tie my shoes twice. I probably would have broke my current PR if it weren’t for that. Oh well. Weather was 37ish with barely any wind. This race is a gradual downhill most of the way (making it normally a good time to set a new record). It was less downhill than I recall so I guess my other races have put it in perspective.
