I could not wait for yesterday to happen. The combination of racing at home, 3 weeks between races, and the Olympic qualifying scenario had me more that ready to race. I ended up racing maybe a shade too kamikaze style. Going out too fast and couldn’t hold on to the end. According to my coaches splits it was 9k into the race I lost the lead so I lost a minute on the last lap. Ouch. Fortunately I was able to hang on to 3rd place. So not too bad. Congrats to Kris on National Title #13 and Tad Elliot for his 2nd place. It’s good to see some young guys stepping it up. Here are a few pics from the day.
