- A woman past me about 3km into the 2nd loop, and as she went by said "I hope you don't mind me saying you have the most beautiful legs" - Just confirms what Kim has told me all these years :)
- The mud was tough for sure, but it was a tacky mud, not the shoe sucking variety I found. It ended up being easier to run through the centre in most sections rather than skirting about it. I do feel sorry for those people trying to run the course in road shoes. Watching them slip and slide was painful. The LaSportiva Crosslites gripped like a studded tire.
- What were those blue flowers in the woods? They were gorgeous, as was some of the forest sections.
- As I said in my report, the course was hilly. Not crazy long climbs, but over the 20km loop very little flat so a lot of constant elevation changing. On that note, my quads were trashed after. I know I was running the downs hard and felt it at the end. Note for next year Derrick, back to wall sits
- 90% sure I will run the 100 mile there next year - Post race I am feeling pretty confident I can do it on that course, and makes for easy crewing for Kim.
On a completely unrelated running note, we just bought a new/used car. A 2010 Toyota Yaris. Bought it for the great fuel efficiency and that it is an automatic so much easier for the kids to drive. We get it Saturday - Her name is BlueBerry.
