Good race I ran about what I thought I would. My goal was 1:03 to
1:05 range so right in the middle.
I felt pretty good after mile 3. First few miles always seam to be
hard for me until I get my breathing under control. I felt bad on
the hills but I guess not too bad whenever I would gain on another
runner it would be because of a hill. I passed several runners in
the last 2 miles of the race. The second place female and I fought
it out to the end when I finally passed her with less than 1/4 mile
to go. First master was about 2 minutes faster than me.
So I have some work to do for next year if I want to be top master.
Overall a great experience and look forward to running it next year.

HA! Welcome to Colorado, where top master in mountain runs is close to top in the country.

But more seriously - well done.

GZ, Your right about that! You should run this race next year! It's not bad for a road race.

You forgot to mention that first place Master was Female. Looks like she rocked the race, 10th overall - beating all (us) Male Masters. Mind you I should probably keep my mouth shut - you beat me by 15 minutes. Congrats on a great effort / result. Craig
