I'm ecstatic. Normally I don't care that much about results, but this race I was more focused, and more intent on competing than any race I've ever done. Maybe it was pre mid-life, maybe it was because I don't get to race as much as I would like and I didn't want to waste an opportunity, in any case, I was driven, and my racing partner was just as driven. We worked as a team and pulled off in my estimation a surprise 3rd place overall ranking. 1st in the 2-person division. WOO-HOO!
We kept up with the leaders up to the end. It was a huge. I'm still in amazement.
