I raced

I did not win
Race Results

8th of 12ish
43:20 this time out,last time on this course a month ago I was 44:17

Fell in the damn parking lot at zero mph when a ginomous bug landed on my ear.
Was looking good to maybe be in the back of the pack until I dropped a chain on the first real climb. Could not close the gap. Worked with another guy and was making progress on some other stragglers until he cramped up and that dream disappeared.

The last mile something was trying to climb out of my belly and I had a nice stitch in my side.

Still slow but a decent improvement. Hung with the pack a lot longer than last go round.
Next time no dropped chain and I'll be golden.

Dropping a chain on a climb or my guts thinking about climbing out?
