Whew! What a race! What a spectacular course! What fun!
What a drag to not finish.
I made it to just about 200k. I felt very good. Everything was "jiggy" as Allison says. I climbed Mt. Sangas at 100 miles. .... Uh...... WHOA? I have never seen anything a crazy (in a good crazy way) as that mountain. My ankle held up on the uphill but did not like the looooong incredibly steep downhill. After much battling with myself, I decided it was best to save the ankle for another day.
I am disappointed but in retrospect would not have done anything differently under the same circumstances.
It was a blast. I got to run with some of the best ultrarunners in the world. And my crew totally ROCKED!!
