fourth attempt on the magnuson series course -- finally got a faster time today (other attempts: 19:12, 19:14, 19:18). there are four more races left to run this year, so my goal is to break 19 at least once.
after the race, james and i went for a hike at tiger mountain [specifically west tiger #3]. it's rare for me to get weekend days off, but i got one today so we took advantage. normally on saturdays i'm engaging in back-breaking labor while buckets of sludge get poured over my head. but i recently got promoted to garbage goblin II so things are looking up.
