I'll write my report as I have time, so I apologize if it breaks off in random places.

I had the 3rd leg and was pretty pumped for the start of the race. I watched Jeff and Hayden rock their legs in the heat, and was ready to do the same. It didn't happen that way, unfortunately, and I'm not sure what happened.

The first mile was fine... The first mile was a reasonably steep uphill, but I came through in about 5:45. The second mile was flatter, but by this point I was starting to have some stomach issues and the heat was getting to me. I think I came through in 5:45, thinking that it felt harder than it should have. The third mile I slowed noticeably to 5:57 and I was struggling. 6:24 and 6:45 carried me through the final two miles. The final 0.6 might have been a little faster, Sasha came back and pushed me through the final quarter, but the short of it is that I dropped the ball on this leg.

So I brooded over the next few hours trying to rehydrate and get ready for my next one.
