I put together some thoughts on my first ultra.
Here's the link.
It's kind of rambling, and a little long.
Short version (If you don't want to read it) I finished. I wasn't dead last. I could walk the next day.
Back of the pack ultra runner's are awesome.
Best Present Ever
Great race report. Running on slick rock sounds brutal. and I think back of the pack is the place to be
That was a tough course, esp. on the 2nd half. I was dead-legged from about 10 miles. Very pretty and great weather. You describe it well - tough to get in a groove for me but winner ran it in 3:40 or so.... CRAZY.
