      Oh David, if you only knew! Ric is "gracious" enough to loan you his large guest room, which is smaller than his own room. You're like, "Wow, thanks a bunch!" until you realize the furnace is in said guest room, and sounds like Grand Central Station when it kicks on!

      LOL. True enough. And if it's not for the furnace kicking on, it's because the homeowner's bedroom is directly above my guest bedroom – and you hear every squeaky footstep! My generosity is a thin façade, but my hapless houseguests know my true selfishness. ;-)

      painwise, it sure beats wearing a shoe that's giving you a bleeding blister, as the girl Dylan was experiencing. :) And honestly, 95% of the trail was totally barefoot friendly; no gravel sections and just a couple big-rock sections (which are actually barefoot friendly since you can walk on or around most of them), and otherwise dirt.

      Good thing you weren't at the BLU 50k course. My shoes were full of thorns after that race!

      this kid - a trail running newbie - really rocked it. he's captain of his high school's water polo team, so he had more than enough heart power for the challenge, even at altitude. but we took some technical stuff -- and fast enough that i broke Strava course records on 3 different segments! - but he didn't miss a beat. :)

      I can't help but notice your post is not "via Garmin". Are you now a victim of the change from Garmin Connect to Garmin Express? If so, welcome to the club!

      thanks, Gavin! No, Lyle, I'm a victim of not charging my garmin fully - it cut off half way back down.
