The course had a strict 2:45 cutoff and since I hadn't run much since Rocket City and my 50K trail race attempt (another blog post I've been meaning to write!) I was a little worried. The mile that was mostly the monster hill slowed me down and I could tell my legs were feeling the lack of running in the month of January but I pressed on.
