After last year's 2nd place at the JK and this year's similar terrain I thought if I was ever going to win the JK it was going to be today.
Made a few small mistakes in the first half (2,7,19) and then saw Will going into 21 as I was coming out. Did think the game was over but then I just wanted to keep ahead of him as long as possible.
Took gel on path run to 23 and took what I thought was the simpler left route to 25, hardly looked ahead at all on this route, just tried to push hard and maintain some positive thoughts as it got tough!
Kept it fairly smooth from there with the biggest wobble on 38, getting distracted by another control. Hit 39 and then kicked for home, taking the overall lead on the way to the last control...
So after 28km it came down to a 7 second win. Good fortune was on my side today.
