Missed my sub-3 again bargghhhhhhh #nemesisrace
Honestly felt horrible for the last few weeks and again wanted to bail on this race. Felt horrible on the climb and even worse down Smuggler's. Compared to last year I was stronger climbing the first few miles, much slower and awful feely on the big climb up Black, got slowed down on the ridge again by slow ridge peeps, much slower on the descent from Smuggler's, but more steady and a little faster on the 6 miles down City Creek. Overall ended up 20 seconds fast than last year which is a shocker and something I should be proud of I guess.
Seriusly hadn't run much leading up to the race because of IT band and SI wonk! If I could only train leading up to this race.... hrmphhh! Next year!!!
