Race Report:

This was my first time finish in the overall ranking of a race. OK the field was small, but I was still better than 57 other competitors.

I heard Lance Armstrong say "The outcome of a race is 50% determined by your preparation, the other 50% depends on who else shows up to race"

The folks that supported me for this race helped raise $1195 that will be used by Autism Speaks to promote awareness and fund research. The 59 participents help raise over $30,000 for this great cause. I'm excited to have been part of this event.
