Thanks! And for sure on the urgency! I was going as fast as I felt comfortable, though. I think I could have picked it up a little bit more, but after being physically wiped out after the first lap on several past races, I generally now treat these as a marathon rather than a sprint. But you are correct, in reviewing the video, I saw lots of places where I was slacking. In hindsight, if I would have just stayed "on it" the whole time, I could have made up several more positions at least. But again, back to the first-lap and never having seen the course and not knowing what's coming up, that's a lot easier said than done. I'm working on it, though.
