"This was a challenge race for me. I totally crashed and burned last year. Temps were better this year and my knee and calves held up after using a new product called hotshot and taking a salt tablet before and during the race. This time, however, I had severe stomach cramps at mile 12 lower right. I wasn't going that fast. Had to walk and take in some water to work through it. As I get older, I constantly have to adjust things. "
