Another podcast episode is up.
In summary, it was windy and smelled like cows for much of the race. The race was uphill until the tunnel, steeply downhill (3.5% grade?) through the wet and dark tunnel (I used my iPhone as a light for the descent) to the flats and the turn around (no longer smelling like cows). Then the return. I was encouraged by the people running around me to keep at the same pace leading me to finish strongly with a new PR of 1:57:14!
For those who are counting, thats a whopping 17 minutes faster than my previous 13 miler (in October) and a full 31 minutes faster than my last (first) Half (in June)!
Photos will be up as soon as I attach my phone to the computer.
