|Hello, I finished way back..slipped and "saved" a fall
but ankle went under me....12 hours after that I finished in 17:14, not
what I wanted. That was about me. The race???? I wanted to drop from 2
mile on, every minute, even with "just" 8 or so miles to go. That last aid
station was not coming.....
Freezing. My shoes were solid ice, they kept on hitting my ankle and cutting into my achilles on downhills. Start had a 15 degree weather which just got colder. Plenty of creek crossings.
The good: Oh my, the most beautiful place. At night, the stars were so many and so fat and so bright. The moon beautiful. Up and up mountains, water running down ravines and small waterfalls everywhere, ice all over the place.....FREEZING!!!!!!!!!!
Total elevation gain is about 13,000. CRAZY. By any standards.
