McDonald Forest 50K

Had a lot of fun yesterday running the Mac. Lots of familiar faces of course, and lots of words of encouragement along the way. The aid station volunteers were great. And it was good to see Gaby, Dennis, Guy, Mac, Sharon and Bo at points along the way. It got a little warmer than I would have liked. And I clearly have not recovered from Capitol Peak. I ran out of steam after about 15 miles, though all my body parts were working okay ... just no juice in the tank. The slog up Horse was a real challenge. I finished in about 5:55 ... not what I was hoping for. But still ... I had a blast.

The Garmin track is here.

Here is a picture of Kiira helping me to mark some of the course the day before the race:
