This race was at Blandy Experimental Farm and State Arboretum. I had run this course before so I was familiar with the different terrains and where to make up time. A lot of the course is gravel, so I knew when I hit the actual paved road to turn it up a notch. That was at about mile two. And then Shane passes me as usual. He always comes flying by at mile 2. I kept him fairly close and at the last turn, I sped up to him and we finished with the exact same time. It always feels good to finish on a dead sprint. Another sub 20:00 time.
