Mt Diablo 50 miler.
It was a beautiful day. I was slow but still have fun. My goal was to finish in 14 hours but I ended up finishing in 15 hours.
I took a pretty good fall going down Burma road which is very steep. My hip thigh and elbow really hurt after the fall. I just sucked up and kept going. it was great seeing all my friends and meeting and running with new ones.
This course is very tough that's why I love it.
I realized being out there I made a big mistake going to crossfit Saturday,( make note to self. No crossfit the day before a race especially on that requires lots of squating ;)
I ran with Elizabeth from the runnersworld forum. Thanks Elizabeth for making the time we ran together go by faster.
me and my pacer Jo Lynn.
I was so happy to the smiling face of my pacer Jo Lynn. We had so much fun she was awesome. She ran a 13 mile section. I'm trying to convert her into a trailrunner. I think I already did.
Fast Jerry paced me the last 12 and he was awesome as always telling me stories and jokes. Even though I was slow I had a great time. Good jog to everyone who pushed through it wasn't easy.
Elizabeth, Jo Lynn, me & Nadia at the Finley aid station. Girls rule.
Two badass fastpackers at the finish. We will both be going for records on long trails this Summer me speed record on the PCT Garrett will be going for a YO YO on the CDT( continental divide trail) Garrett has also hiked the PCT and the AT. Good luck.
