I'm not quite up to posting a full race report yet, but thought I'd better acknowledge my finish at Wildflower.
It was a great day--beautiful. I couldn't get the smile off my face the entire time.
I finished in about 7 hours and 29 minutes. A little slower than I'd hoped, but conditions were a bit gnarlier (very windy!) than anticipated.
A long course finish at Wildflower is success enough. 3500 athletes started my race. 1966 actually crossed the finish line. The race gods were with me; I was lucky enough (and well enough prepared) to be one of them!
A more detailed race report will be coming soon. :-)
