Summer series race at Golden Gate Park with Presto! Super fun (and tricky) race! I was feeling much spritelier than yesterday, which wasn't hard - still slow, but I was enjoying it much more.
The course was kind of a series of butterfly loops. I spiked the first control and then proceeded to go straight to number 3. This in and of itself would have been annoying but not that big of a deal because 2 and 3 were close to each other. Except 2 was the center of the first set of butterfly loops, so when I came back to the center (now number 6), I went to 3 before 2 again while I was thinking I was being all smart and reading ahead since I already knew were 2 was. Sigh. I had a few other bobbles and some suboptimal route choices, but the rest of the course was significantly better than the first 6 controls :-).
My left foot started aching and feeling super tingly towards the end. I am somewhat confused about what is wrong with it.
Otherwise, this course was super fun and it was good to see everyone. And, most importantly, Presto finished out his winning streak in the Quadraped category for the summer series
. Go Presto!!!
