Sage definitely put some pressure on me on that last run, but I knew I just needed to clean things up a bit and just enjoy it. Take it in and it worked out.

I was having a great time and just wanted to give props to my boys for having  great runs, you know fill my mind with that, and it worked for me.

It was a long day but really fun. The weather cleared up and it was absolutely and I don't think I could be any more excited!
