Heat KILLED me. I was walking so much. Set out for 50, but somewhere around mile 15 I realized.. "oh shit, it's hot" I had planned on getting up around 5 but didn't get to start running until 8:30, so by the time I hit a few miles in the sun was getting up. I saw some really amazing things though. I had to stop and wait a minute or two, to let a doe realize I meant her and her baby no harm. Then on another loop, I saw 5 young deer on the trail, obviously just out for a stroll. They saw me and took off but it was really neat to see all 5 just actually on the trail.

    Great long run, even if you meant for it to be longer. Nice to see some wildlife along the way too!

    Way to go, Vinny. It was a hot day - and probably hotter were you were than where I am.

    thanks guys.. yeah it was pretty rough.. went through over two liters of water. Thankfully, the trails hit parks and in the parks i found some water fountains to fill up at.
