Wow - good thing there weren't too many people running this race.  Me and another CR Series regular ran out in front the whole way.  I probably could've pushed and ran a little faster, but was feeling the effects of the 10 pounds I gained in both knees.  Course had a portion in a deep fine grained gravel that may have slowed me down a bit, but really, I am just in bad shape, now :)

19:07, 2nd.  Okay - turkey trot 8k on Thanksgiving next and 2 more CR Series races.
