Pretty good run. Excellent navigation, no mistakes, but got more and more tired, stumbling and falling a lot. I think I was second or third at about 3/4 of the couse, behind Spike and maybe a cadet, but then first Stefan Slutsky and Angelica went by, then not far from the end Tom Overbaugh, Pavlina, Izzy, and a cadet or two.
Nevertheless, very pleased. And that despite getting whacked by a branch, cuts to the bridge of my nose and just under my left eye, both administered by my glasses. I was losing blood for the rest of the course.
Didn't matter. What mattered was Kenny's answer when I ran by him at the food stop and I asked how I looked. "Hard core." :-)
A selfie was taken.... :-)
The question is whether I show it to my eye doctor at my next visit.
