1 mi. WU over to start line, 

Course is very hilly, and I've been feeling bad with a stomach bug the last couple days.  I was feeling some cramping /tightness and had digestion  issues throughout the race today.  Fairly pleased with the result considering all the excuses I had :)

Last 5k was horrible... 21:11 :(

The legs also felt tight from mile 1, so oh well.

15k under an hour and 1:04:52 though 10 mi.  No GPS watch still, so no splits.

God, my stomach is still churning while sitting here typing this.  :(

This is a point to point race, so 4.5 mi. slow rec. jog back to car.
