Rookie mistake: I forgot that Brazen has TWO websites, one for their spring race Diablo Trail CHALLENGE and one for their fall, Diablo Trail ADVENTURE. Typically the DTC in spring falls on Daylight Savings Day, and for that reason, they push the race an hour later. OOPS. I check out the DTC race webpage rather than looking at the confirmation pre-race e-mail, and show up what I thought would be ample time to set my stuff down, get a nice warm up in, and head to the start line…nope. I show up just as Sam is counting down the start to the 10k! The course was fantastic, the weather was perfect, and due to the lack of rainfall this year (2015), the trails were packed and creeks were dry. For my mistake I needed to make up as much time and get into place as soon as possible, passing on the single track was challenging per usual but everyone racing was courteous to slide over. The only wish I had was if the 5k was designated to stay to one side or their course looped a little differently if possible; just makes for a 10k/half finish challenging snaking through all the walkers, hikers, and 5k finishers.
