alright Survivor 20K (last of 4) Race 13.05 mi 04:00 18:25 pace

I have very mixed emotions about this race. For starters-I felt that it was over and beyond my abilities to run its entire course. But aside from a flat 17 mile walk-this was my longest distance on foot doing anything. I was not able to run the entire course-I am not sure if I ran half or not. It was not only a trail run and hilly. But this morning we had a downpour. I have never ran that far in long streams of wet sloggy mud and water. I found it to be fun at times. But this wear made the last three miles a real sufferfest for me. It was warmer today than what I am acclimated to. So I was pretty fatigued towards the last 3 miles. I was most dissapointed with myself at the finish. If nothing else I am inspired to become a stronger and more enduring runner. I ran/walk with a friend and we enjoyed each other's company. Made it a great day to be doing what I can and pushing my limits. Starting temp 63 degrees, 84 percent humidity with SE winds at 8 mph. Finished temp. 79 degrees. 60 percent humidity with S winds at 18 mph.

    You did it! That's the accomplishment! I bet it was really sloppy out there which slowed everyone down. Hot too. We're not ready for this July swelter yet. Swelter is a word, right? Good job Karol!

    Awesome job out there today. Don't be disappointed with your performance. Conditions were tough out there between the difficult mud and summer-like temperatures! EVERYONE walked more than they normally would and we all were wiped out over the last couple of miles. You are not alone!

    Sounds like a tough course Karol. Give yourself a pat on the back. You took on the challenge and stomped it into the ground every step of the way. Great job!

    GREAT JOB HERO!!! Excellent job with the rain storm and mud. Wheather you walked or ran, 17 miles is a long way. I think if that snake would have crossed my path I'd sprint. I HATE snakes. Glad you were able to get in the pool. Hopefully it'll help.

    I'm sorry I'm late in leaving my praise for your amazing accomplishment yesterday, Karol. You know, those trails are hard when weather conditions are perfect. But, for you to have completed four races in snow, ice, extreme cold, extreme heat, mud, deep puddles, challenging hills, rope climbs, damn dams, slush, humidity...well, you're a flippin HARDCORE survivor woman! The snake should've been more afraid of you than the other way around. You inspire me + I think you absolutely rock!

    Survivor Series.. Thy name sayseth all.

    Karol this is a very tough race that many people would not even consider doing. Even folks with multiple marathon distance runs under their belt.

    You conquered it! Be proud!
