June 29, 2020 - Warm, sunny, humid - summer in Minnesota!
What luck with the weather! It was hot and humid, and I definitely felt it, but it was good to try and maintain a race pace in a "race." I kept telling myself to not start out too fast, but of course I did. But not as too fast as usual!
I drove about 1.5 hours to get to a course I knew would be good. It has four corners, but no turnarounds, and not too much traffic. I am glad I did this effort, and now I have a current benchmark I need to beat. This time was 2:41 faster than my previous official attempt at this distance about three years ago. I have been doing shorter efforts in competition.
Tahnks to NormaTec and Team Stages Cycling for creating the event!
