In a nutshell: 2nd place, 2hr 38min, 2 minutes slower than my first race even though I felt better paced. A tiring and stressful week at work took its toll. It’s certainly an early season learning/fitness curve. I’m excited that there’s a strong lady’s field this year! Drove home over the pass in pouring rain. Yep, Tahoe winter never came. Thanks to Jared for taking sweet photos and prepping my bike!
