I ran off the poorly marked course and ran an extra .8 miles. Would have finished 3rd if not for that. By the time I got back to the course I was somewhere between 15th and 20th place. I was in a foul mood and mostly jogging but perked up when I started passing people.
The course was challenging. Hilly with lots of washboardy dirt roads.
Still won my age group and they had a great post-race BBQ with free beer. Enjoyed talking to some great people at the finish and they have a lot of pride in this small town race.
