Twas a very fun day at the Moab 1/2 Mary. I got up at 2:am and made my way to Moab.....Got there just in time to pick up my bib and head over to the bus, load up and get up the canyon so I could wait an hour and a half to start the race! At least it wasn't a really crumby cold wet day!! It was a windy day, 20 mile per hour in your face crap!!!!

But, I went into the race just wanting to have a pretty fun run, somewhat competitive for my old man age division.....and that's what I got...
