2nd time doing this thing, I had so much unfinished business from last year. See that short post for my rant. Things were much different this year including:
- I did not train a longer distance than 9 miles (lol whoops), versus the 20 miles last year
- I brought all the gels
- It was a lot cooler, about 48°F at the start, and finishing around 60, full sun though
- I did not get to train on the same mountains as I moved to Wisconsin from Virginia
Other than that, I took my sweet time. This is when I started having my foot issues where my foot is falling asleep essentially (as of April 2017, I have not solved this problem) around 2.5-3 miles into runs. I took selfies and pictures galore. I ended up with a time of 5 hours and 26 minutes.
So here is a short gallery of stuff I took and a video of the finish!
