Looks like “Coach Nikki” is making sure that Graham
keeps his focus…

It was so cold on race day morning, but it is always a
good one to go to because Coach 2 always like to go to the Farmers’ Market &
post race is always a nice burger (Water Buffalo meat is very yummy).

As
for the race, I took a long time to get going as the first 2K felt very sluggish
with the climb out of the start area and a couple of undulations and climbs but
eventually it did start coming together. Into the second half of the race and I
started to have a good battle on the undulating run into the finish with a
female runner who eventually came in 3rd female’ I got chicked by three
runners.

“Coach Nikki’s” comment was not good enough, harsh, but
true!
