Overall this was a really great "race" for me. I quoted race because I really treated it more like speed work than a race. As much as I sometimes want to run all out, for these C priority races it just isn't worth it. I hurt my training for my big events more by going hard. Hopefully thinking like that isn't an athletic faux pas.
Anyway, it was a good run, on a great day, with lots of friends to talk to afterwards. I couldn't have asked for much more really.
