Due to some injuries (knee, shin) and the way my training was going I didn’t expect to repeat last year’s performance. It was a cold, rainy day and the towpath was muddy and slick. I was hopeful to get under 90 minutes, shooting for 85. Ended up finishing under 80 minutes. Not too far off from last year’s run. Even though it was painful at times the race gave me confidence and made me hopeful about future races.
