The first race is done. Months of training. Months of worrying. Months of wondering. Done in just 1:59:58. 

I finished like I thought I would, last place. But I did finish. Within the first half mile, before the race real started, I threw a chain. And there went everyone. The wheel truck tried to get me back in it for a little bit, but it was too late. I happen warmed up enough either so I didn’t have the legs to chase the pack down. 

But I stuck it out. Didn’t get laped. And I finished before the Cat 1,2, and 3 guys got started. So it was the most successful failure I’ve had in awhile.
