O race 1:26:11  *** 8.2 km (10:31 / km)
19c shoes: Inov8 Mudroc
cold! partly cloudy and still.
my only big O mistake was on 5 where I made a 180 degree error and corrected somewhat haphazardly. didn't feel like such an error but it appears it cost me 5 or 6 min. the rest went as planned.
running-wise I felt out of shape (again). ok for the first half but knee began to hurt around 12. was tolerable but definitely interfered.
