I started out hard, on what was a great course....some good hills, river crossing and a variety of terrain. Through the first two miles I led but surrendered at the halfway point and eventually hung on for a hard earned 3rd place overall! It was great to be back onto the trails and gives me a good point of reference as we head into the final two months before the Xterra World Championships. Next for me is the Shenandoah 100mile MTB race next weekend.....now that should be EPIC!
Sarah had a great race of her own and nailed 2nd place in age group for another podium spot!
