2:07:17 for this first timer. Rain stopped as Rec Wave 3 bus neared the start. Road was wet but not soaked. I did get sprayed by "rooster tails" for the first few miles. No falls. Made friends and even drafted a little (beginner level stuff). Bearings on first and second wheels "frozen"; lesson learned about bearing maintenance after skating in the rain. I need to work on maintaining form when fatigue sets in. That will be my training goal along with finishing under two hours. I beat my personal goal of finishing under 2:30. I had a blast, met new people, and signed up for next year after the race. I can't wait for next year's NSIM. Thank you all for the advice and encouragement.
