Held on May 7, 2022 on the Tye River in Nelson County, VA.
Check out their race site and scroll through the years and have a laugh or three at my expense: http://nelsoncountyva.org/NelDRace/
Here’s my full, on-river race experienced the last time they ran this race pre-COVID.
And if can attribute my best time down this river to any factor, it would be building my latissimus dorsi (lats) muscles over the past two years. I could feel how engaged they were and was very aware of my lats, legs and torso rotation.
Train slow, race fast.
