I had an amazing race, and finished the 26 mile course in two hours and 20 minutes, snagging 3rd in my category and 15th overall out of 237 starters. My time would have put me in the top 10 of 20 pros that started/finished. I felt great the entire time, except for the very end when my sides started to cramp. It was a hot day of racing, but the Lemurian Shasta Classic was definitely one of the best cross-country races I've ever done. A full race recap to follow, so stay tuned.
