How did it go? AWESOME! I broke all of my records, with only one exception. The exception was the 1500 meters, where I was on pace to beat my personal record by almost 2 seconds and then wiped out on the last turn (but I think I'll still consider that a personal record because I know about what time I was going to finish at anyways).
Below are some photos from the "Mass Start" race which we compete in on the last day of competition after all other races are finished. The Mass Start is experimental, meaning it is being tested before it will be a part of selection processes for national teams and a part of the Olympics. For the guys, about 20-25 skaters race at one time for 20 laps and usually with prize money for the winner. I finished around 7th place?
