I’d moderately lose a couple of minutes than be going residence although, so general, I’m pleased with how the day turned out and I’m nonetheless forward within the general. It’s relaxation day now, and that’s at all times an essential milestone to hit. We knew the primary half of this 12 months’s occasion can be robust, and it was!
