    Ugh, have I mentioned how much I hate 1600s before? Blech. Knew it was going to be fun when the legs didn't even want to get going for the warmup. Was short on the first, way off on the sec... read more

      Cool profile pic. Looks like a gorgeous trail! 1600's are BRUTAL. Total win in all those strikes against you. Last being your fastest says a lot!

      Steve, it was a very gradual ascent for the first 10 of this run other than the three hills at the end of the course. I think looking at the elevation chart is very deceiving. Other than about the first 8 miles of the full marathon, I don't think this feels very downhill. To me it seems rolling or flat.

      Got it. I have personally run in marathons billed as "flat and fast" only to find out they are not. Then again, maybe they're comparing them to, say, a marathon in the Rocky Mountains.

      Awesome job on the long run Jill! Sorry about the hip acting up. Do you stretch post run? That's what makes my hips/legs/ankles and everything else stay happy. I do about 10 min of easy stretches after most runs and bike rides. :+)
