The 3 and 4 min ones were the worst because of where we were on the Mtn. We sprinted from Mile 8 to mile 14. I had some stomach problems and lost jason at windy point mile 15 Chelsy zoomed by me at mile 18 and handed me some much needed electrolyts I felt much better but I had to slow my pace for my stomach to recover and my legs cooled down and turned to lead I had to use everything I had to keep it above 5mph.
