There was one other semi-fast runner there, and he was winning for the first four miles of the race after a super fast first mile, but he struggled more than I did over the second half so I ended up taking the win. Race was to benefit the Douglas County Veterans Memorial Foundation and I got a coin for winning.
After the race we dropped by 105W Brewing to celebrate. Castle Rock has quite a few good breweries nowadays, Burly and Wild Blue Yonder, plus Maddie's Beergarten, but 105W is still our go-to.
After we got home I headed out again for my first hash in months. Good to get back out there on trail, even if I spend most of my time lost and wondering around the westside.
