This year I wasn’t feeling in my best shape so I just wanted to finish in a decent time (under 1 hour). Plus I had been fighting a cold so it wasn’t that easy to breathe. The race went by fairly quickly—I don’t remember ever dreading any part of it. As always, the food at the end was amazing—that’s the big reason to run this race! Unfortunately I missed my goal time by only 1:17—there’s always next time!
