Billygoat at Nottingcook Forest, Bow, NH.
Finished 32nd, I think tie with last year for highest finish place for me. Under 2 hrs for the first time, bestnig my previous fastest Billygoat time by over 15 min. Course was a bit short with winning time at 80min but well designed and lots of fun. Was with others for much of the course up until the 2nd aid station (#14), then did 15 to the finish mostly on my own, but did see others over that stretch. Lost 3 min on 16 and another minute on 20 (saw PG on the way to 20 but didn't follow him - D'oh). Was with Jeff Shapiro of and on through 12, I think he got past me as I bobbled 16, then caught him just after 21 and out raced him to the finish. Weather was just about perfect with temps in the upper 50's and a breeze to keep the bugs away.
Thanks to Bob Lux, Jim Arsenault, and the whole support crew for making the event possible.
