      Great RR and pictures.  This one is on my list for next year, so it was nice to see some pictures of the course and hear about the difficulty level.  Thanks for sharing, and congrat's on an excellent run!

        Muddling through

          You do realize that knob is bonk spelled backwards?

          2014 Goals: Run first trail ultra, first 100K, and see what I can do in a 24-Hour race

            I dubbed this section the Hill of Despair for the numerous false summits and relentless climbs.

             

            That is exactly like the "Dirty Dog 15K" in my area.  You cross a summit and head downhill only to go back up again.  And again.  And again.  Great job of hanging in there despite the stomach issues.  That's tough.

            Short term goal: 17:59 5K

            Mid term goal:  2:54:59 marathon

            Long term goal: To say I've been a runner half my life.  (I started running at age 45).

              Those ups and downs sound insane.  Great job pushing through the stomach issues, Banshee, and congrats on the AG award!

                I think that hiking that would have done me in.  Congrats on a great race under tough conditions.

                  Oh, and "blue knob" sounds like some sort of painful condition. Cool

                    Seriously though, I would break into a million pieces if I tried to run that!  Trail runners are a different breed, there's no doubt about it.

                     

                    Second is second, regardless if two were removed because of overall wins.  As such, you are gathering quite a collection of bling this year, you go girl!

                      Definitely a great race! Get your hill runs and technical trails in!
