|Going out hard!|
So... here's my late and abridged race report with no photos. Super exciting, I know.
My buddy Joe Bistrain was supposed to meet me at the start area before the race to warm up. But Joe apparently overslept, or spent an inordinate amount of time in the bathroom dealing with an over fibrous breakfast, or was too cheap to pay for parking in downtown Santa Cruz and had parked several miles away in a residential neighborhood. Whatever the excuse, he showed up at the starting line a minute after the race start. Luckily for Joe, the race was delayed a few minutes while police were clearing the course.

Afterwards I met up with my buddy Joe (who ran a 1:28:01) and grabbed some coffee and breakfast nearby restaurant on the pier by the beach. Not a bad way to start a great day!
