1:51 am - Third Leg as shown on Saturday's report -

4.26mi. - 26:29 (6:21, 6:04, 6:23, 6:09, 1:31 for 0.26mi.)

This race was 103 miles - our team came in third.  Second place would've probably been ours had one of our runner's not taken a wrong turn and added 2 miles to his leg.

We finished at around 3:30am and I got home at 5:30a... a long night.

OFF - Put my shoes on twice and talked myself out of it both times - very tight left IT and related pains in left leg.  Yesterday, I struggled with a 9-10 min. shuffle for 7.5 mi.  Don't want to be going "there" quite yet.
