What a great race! I was a little worried about running solo but I made it through and I had a blast doing it! It was great to see so many familiar faces out on the trails. I even found it helpful to say encouraging words to runners in passing... I guess sharing a little positive energy helped get me through it.

The weather was just about perfect - it did get a little hot later but luckily some aid stations had ice. I also dumped about 3 cups of water on myself wherever I could to keep cool. It paid off. I'd say this was my strongest run to date. I didn't run into any tummy issues.... I think I have the nutrition stuff dialed in. My feet were feeling the climbs a little more than normal. I don't think I've broken in the Peregrine 4s enough.

I definitely underestimated the course. I'm pretty familiar with the Nordic loop but the other portions were pretty new to me. Some of those climbs really got to me!! So I know where I need work for Kettle and I'm excited for the challenge! :)

This race is really well organized and the people at the aid stations were so friendly! Definitely a race I'd love to do again! I'll write a full report on my blog this week :)
