hour 2 is under way!
championship level backyarding is so different than the normal open backyard competition…
no one blew out a fast first yard in the USA venue.
the first runners came in over 50 minutes.
no one is milling around wasting energy between yards.
everyone went straight to their campsite
and got off their feet.
everyone understands the reality of this game at this level.
there are only so many minutes of rest they will have.
and they will not get a single minute back.
so every minute is precious.
the race is deceptive.
it sounds easy
it looks easy
it is easy…
until it is not.
so every minute is precious!
if they are not used wisely
there will be a price to pay later.
