That was something a whole lot different; there were ups and downs and parts I can't remember. It was hot, it was sunny, then it was dark (except for the Luxor beam in the distance). It was painful, it was amazing. At no point was it easy. I was surrounded by the most awesome runners you could ever hope to meet. Again and again I felt the pure simple joy of continually moving forward, of getting shit done.
Keep moving for 12 hours - yes.
Don't worry about pace - no Garmin for me.
Contain the Bitchmonster - check! Pretty sure hydration and fueling helped 100%.
At one point I mentioned 40 miles - also done. 17 laps plus 0.5 miles.
Achilles issues - none. Breathe.
I am so happy with how this race went I am actually considering another one.
Race report soon!
