Finally completed the one thing that has not let me over the years...I've Completed just about all the hardest mountain 100's in the country, including a Barkley fun run and this one has not let me get through it over the years. And now I know why...it takes a lot of mental strength to leave Camp Roosevelt at mile 46, knowing how difficult the final 25 miles are, at night and pretty much unaided. Lots of cussing going on that night. The one problem with not having any snow there is the leaves are knee deep in some places and I fell many times due to unseen obstacles, sleep fatigue and low energy. Also due to the heat of the day, my stomach went south and I couldn't eat or drink anything after 46, but thanks to low HR training, if you go slow enough, you can move on your fat stores and that's just what I did,my average HR for the day was around 125.
The temperature dropped at night into the 20's with high gusty winds and the 30 pounds of clothes I put on at Camp Roosevelt kept me snug and warm. It was a long overnight hike.
I threw in a couple extra miles due to the fact that I lost the trail a couple of times after mile 57 (Milford Gap) and once went a half mile down the trail and had to hike back up and another time about 200 yards or so...just not paying attention. Otherwise I could have gotten in under 24, which was my goal.
Glad it's done...
