So today was race day for that dreaded cross country course. When I woke up this morning it was thundering and pouring rain. GREAT....AWESOME....THANKS....it continued to pour rain up until about 15 mins before start. The only good thing about the rain it was cloudy and the temperature/humidity was down. Since I had already practiced this grueling course 2 times this week I had a plan in mind to stay slow up til the end-HA that never seems to work for me. I did pretty good until the huge hill after hill after hill part came and I started losing stamina. And of course I walked some. My buddy on the other hand, she did SUPER!! I could only see her waaayyyy in front of me for a little over half of the race, GREAT JOB girl I told you at the beginning of the race today was your day!! I did end up with 3rd place in my age group so I am thankful!! But I still don't like XC!!
