Looking at the race map, I'd guess that you accidentally started your watch half an hour early. Your GPS track appears to show some walking around near the start.
Great job! All your running training is paying off. :)
Congratulations!! Sounds like you had a fantastic race and well executed with enough left in the tank for a strong finish! Your mountain life is showing :).
Love to hear that you were feeling like you were flying! So great!! Nicely done! And well under the 4 hour target!
Sounds like it was such a great event and so much fun with the big Canmore group!
Bash, that is weird as I could have sworn I did not press start before the race....I also noticed it happened on few previous occasions, where there is a significant time difference between Suunto's data and the actual elapsed time. I will monitor it more closely from now on....
