Travel home from Washington DC to San Diego.
Tired and sore, but moving. :-)

Race report is almost ready. I am waiting on the official split times to add to the report before posting it. Be ready - it was a long race, so it is a long race report. Tammy is also working on a race report from a crew member perspective. I can't stress enough the importance of a good crew for a race like this.
Pack up gear. Awards lunch. Drive to my sister's house in Bristow (DC area). It was great spending the evening and night with her. My 2.5 year old niece is so cute!!

Trainer - morning.

Skipped the brick run. Still having foot pain. A 20 minute run today is not going to really change the outcome of my race.
