This is the first race I have entered where I wasn't trying strictly for my best time. I did this one for fun, and a few beers at the end of the race. In running a little slower (to be pace horse for a friend) the hills seemed fairly easy. I would do it again that way but right now I am training like crazy for the Columbia Tri. on May 22. I may be the only person who did the race last year and who will be the same age when competing this year!!
