While I would be donning my racing flats, I wasn't aiming for anything big. Particularly with the volume of running, having run 10 miles the day before on Wednesday, I was not concerned with hitting a big PR. Still pretty stoked about my 39:50, and with this course being a little hilly, it was my goal just to beat my course record (42:15) from last year.
But I wasn't going to take myself too seriously. A friend of mine who I worked with in Santa Cruz lives in Rochester, and we got together last night and had a couple of glasses of wine. Was nice and relaxed - no problems falling asleep this time!

A course best by almost 2 minutes, and only 34 seconds off my PR. Yesterday's 10 miles and 2 glasses of wine didn't really hold me back!
