09/13/05 CCB Masters  Descend 200s

I got a lot of long faces today when I announced the main set, but by the 5th and 6th 200, everyone rallied and finished with some incredibly strong times. I think they surprised themselves. Before the final 200, I asked everyone for a target time, and everyone pretty much demolished their target.
