Well, it was a wake up call.
I thought I was running for 8th (and some cash) and worked really hard over the last couple of km. But it turns out I was 9th (once again) and just missed out.
The positives; A good workout, a good chance to test mental toughness and the body held up.
The negatives; Swam way off course on the way back. Fog and sun were not my friends.
Got my A$$ handed to me.
Such is sport! Learn, move on!
Time to go home and see the pack.
