Race Report:

Came down with an ear infection the weekend before the race, and spent the week hacking up phlegm. I got some antibiotics a couple days before the race, and felt well enough to start. I never felt too good --- my legs felt heavy, and from mile nine to the end, I just faded away. So it wasn't blazing speed that won the race, rather, it was because the other guys faded more. Anyhoo, it was fun, and I was very happy to win.
