"Despite a freezing cold start and relentless hills, this race went well for me. I had a hard time settling into a nice, even pace. My splits were all over the place due to the hills but it was a beautiful run and I felt strong throughout."
"Thought I was going to have a pretty bad race, but at about mile 10, I overheard another runner's trainer tell her that she was on pace to make it in 3 hours, and I realized I probably had enough left to go for it. So I did. Still not quite as good as in February (too much slacking off), but I'm pleased I did as well as I did."
"Fun to be back on the X-C Course after a 15 year hiatus course was tough and race was hard but overall a good day nice to see all my old teammates and competitors from the Farm Team days 5:28, 5:36, 5:41, 5:58, 5:28, 5:58"
