Thoughts that went through my head mid race:
I LOVE trails!
This is like having suction cups on the bottom of your shoes AND being on a slip 'n slide of mud all at the same time.
Why is that guy wearing ALL white? Does he think he's being funny? Because I don't think it's funny at all. (He later proceeds to fall and get completely muddy.)
Up, down, up, down...
Not sure if I'll still be upright at the bottom of this hill. AHHH!
SO much fun!
Okay, so maybe I shouldn't have run Friday night and rode on the trainer on Saturday. My ass really hurts running up these hills.
This is fun, but I would NOT have wanted to run around the lake twice (like the 50Kers).
Fritos have never tasted so good. When was the last time I had a frito?
Mile 11.5 - Ugh. Foot.completely.drenched.in.mud. Squish, squash, squish, squash...
Okay, just think of this mud as some lavish spa treatment for your feet and legs. Ha.
Mile 14! Almost there! Can't.run.any.faster. Mud is so slippery.
I'm going to finish under 3 hrs!
Wahoo! Finish line! Wait, I thought this was 15.5 miles not 14.75? I sort of want to run 'til my watch shows 15.5. I'm a mileage addict.
Grilled cheese made of fake cheese and white bread has never tasted so good. mmm...
Okay, those are most of the entertaining thoughts I had through the 15 miles. I'll fill you in on the details soon, but for now, Happy Monday!
Thanks to the manfriend and mom for cheering me on and taking photos!
