Mountain biking (CW8 bike) 2:19:00  19.4 mi (8.4 mph)
shoes: Trek SuperFly
Started with a bike leg in Castlewood. Thankfully Brenden rides there all the time and made quick work of the nav. Not thankfully people riding both directions on narrow trails was super annoying when there was no kind of trail etiquette. I was getting crabby early, which isn't like me.
Towed a little on the pavement, though I for some reason let go of the tow right at the bottom of St. Paul Rd and then twice missed grabbing it before giving up and just riding the hill on my own. It seemed way easier than it's felt before.
We only had one tow, which minimized the benefit. I mean, it gave me a break, but we still had to keep a pace where we weren't losing Renee, who wasn't interested in towing.
Got a bonus map at CP24 (Sherman Beach parking lot) with 4 CPs on the flats, then headed down Al Foster to Zombie for the final CPs of the race. Looking at the number on the clue sheet, I realized (welcome to the race, Kate) that it listed numbers 1-30 and then 39-43 and became convinced we were getting a surprise map with more trekking. And I was wrong.
Very frustrated with myself on the rocky parts of zombie, but most of it was really fun. I definitely missed my singlespeed, though.
Finished 18th overall and 5th in our division. Really the only way we could have improved was a better paddle to bike transition (which was slow) and then just being faster overall, but we had a great race.
