this was my third race on this course.

(april 19:12 / may 19:14 / july 19:18) 

after three attempts, i don't think i can do much better than this without some serious fitness gains. it's a xc-style course with loose gravel, some grass, and lots of twists and turns. it makes for a choppy rhythm and i have a hard time keeping my speed up. splits were 6:08, 6:15, 6:19, 35 

there are five more races in this series throughout the rest of the year, so i have a few more shots at it. my goal is to eventually break 19:00 here.

i like that your finish times are very WWI era patriotic times. here's to hoping you can get closer to general custer/battle of little bighorn times.

You have been pretty consistent on you race times. I enjoy running those kinds of courses even though they are slower. That way I focus more on race strategy and placing more than time.

Podium is where it is at!
