By far the toughest course I have ever and will ever run in my life! Brutal was the word of the day for me! Elevation was crazy so please check out the elevation chart. The uphills were brutal and I walked a lot! The downhills were so steep that I had to run parts of them so slowly it was crazy! I had a crazy time goal in mind and totally don't care that I didn't even come close! I met a new friend yesterday around mile 14, Audrey, we ran a few miles of it together but we lost each other during the craziness of Peakwood! Yesterday I questioned my desire to ever run another marathon and today I've already decided if they offer us half price again that I'll totally do it next year!

    I will make you a deal...assuming I am physically capable next year, I will run/walk it with you if you decide to do it again.

    I can't see the elevation picture but from looking at your new friends blog it looks crazy!

    Wow, Dean, that is not something I would have ever though I'd hear you say!! Although, if we're doing Disney in January do you really want to do another full in April? The half maybe, although we only get one mountain there.

    It's a truly brutal course. The scenery is amazing but challenging doesn't even begin to describe it. Congratulations!
