Run - Road warm up/down 20:00 [2] 3.0 km (6:40 / km)
shoes: Adidas Response Trail 14

warmup before the middle pig. Cool and damp, but the rains of earlier had subsided. Ran up the hill at a pretty decent pace to get the heart rate up and then jogging around and stretching at the start. Although chilly at the start, I decided to take off the longer top I had on and just run in short sleeves. Was a good choice. As I was standing around waiting for my start I heard a familiar name called up to the line - Ivar Helgeson. I thought to myself, the basemapper? nah, can't be... but indeed it was...

The absolute last starter of the day, and no one out on any other courses either, so started alone. The crew began taking down the start while I was on the line and apparently put away the beeping timer before I started - seemed like a long minute on the line and I asked the guy - shouldn't there be a beep? He says, 'oh yeah - you can go....'

Very slick especially in the area around each control since everyone had been there before me churning up the goo. Almost slid past the first and fifth controls.

A few minor hesistations, a couple route corrections required but a fairly clean, but far from perfect run. Overtook and passed a couple of M45's so felt good about that. Wound up 3rd on M45, only 9 seconds shy of 2nd spot, Mark Voit winning the class in 32:33.
