I ran in to my friend Brian at the race. It was great to see him, although he is much younger and faster than me.
One frustrating thing that happened was that right as the race started, one side of my headphones stopped working, so for the whole race I could only hear in one ear. Nothing major but it was something I wasn't used to, and just a bit annoying. And now I think I need to get some new headphones.
I skipped the post-race chili and opted for a birthday lunch with my son, which was great.
