Race race 2:51:00  24.0 km (7:08 / km)
RTH with Storm and Chad. Unfortunately Bent couldn't race due to illness so luckily we were able to pick up Chad at the last minute. Chad graciously said he would let me do lead nav but I knew that wouldn't last long with the speed of the boys. From the get go it was a hammer fest and just trying to keep up was pure joy. I thought Storm and I were fast in the bush bud Chad made it look like walk in the park. Basically followed along to make sure we were going in the right direction and didn't make any wrong turns. That was easy as there were none! As a typical race goes for Chad he decided to loose the SI near the beginning of RUn DMC. Luckily another team helped us search for it and found the golden SI
Second half of race we mostly were alone hitting cp after cp until the last one where we saw Pillar and his young recruits. We figured they were in first so we tried to pick up the pace but our legs were spent. Able to finish off with body still intact. Solid race and we couldn't have done much more than we did. Chad was surgical with his nav and Storm kept the engine going. Easy when you have teammates like that!
