Yabbut the last 5 miles are all downhill

That elevation chart you posted on FB looks insane. You'll do great though - need a report after!

Its a David Horton Race. I guess he typically adds a few miles to make things tougher. The profile chart reads 31.7, but from the writings its said to be 34... looks insane, it will be a combat run. :)

You had a great finishing time, congrats!

BTW, your Garmin link doesn't work - says I don't have sufficient privs.

Ran (?) my first trail race today, also my first race in three years. Even tho it rained all night, the trail conditions were great. Ran 2:29 for the 12 miles. I walked the uphills and did notice that there were more uphills on the last lap than on the first lap . This beats the heck out of road running.

why yes.. yes it does beat road running! Good job on youre first trail race. Bet you noticed 12 trail miles feels like at least 20 road miles!

Be careful, or you will become an addict!

Nice kicks - they get great reviews!

Saw your FB post - are you doing any part of the LHHT ultra this weekend? Pacing, team event, etc?
