Here is a re-posting of a comparison between my MDS 2013 and 2015 performance. Not quite an After Action/Race Report but some insight into the race.
With the race and recovery behind me I have had some time to try and assess how I did this year compared to my 2013 performance. Out on the course I was getting the feeling I was way off the pace which turned out to be not quite true. Additionally, it was a surprise that stage 1 and stage 2 were almost identical between the two years. At least those allow a fairly direct comparison. Weather this year I believe played a larger role compared to two years ago. While much cooler it was significantly more windy. So in the end it looks like my pace was very close to where I was at two years ago but the field was perhaps not quite as strong (even though it was 25% larger, about 1,400 vs 1,100). I am happy with my old man performance….
