I was 100% healthy for this race, this year. I have been either sick or injured every time I have run it, until today. So I finally got to find out how fast I can actually run this course! My previous record was 20:12, which I achieved in 2013. Today, I ran 19:45. And I won the race for the fourth year in a row. It was the second time (2013 being the first) that I won the entire race. Second place was 20 seconds behind me. I felt strong throughout the race and was really excited to find myself able to give the race everything I had, with cooperative lungs.
this is roughly half-way through the race
I continued widening the gap as I got further through the course.
