Tahoe Rim Trail - 2012 (Read 445 times)

    Fudge Fuck!

     

    I felt worse at the 50 mile mark than I did last year at 100 miles, so I dropped. 

    Partly weather (much warmer this year) and I fell in the Red House loop (mile 16ish) and racked my hips. Forced me to shorten my stride and was running tense.

     

    I finished the first 50 in a little over 13 hours so I could have gone on (course is open for 35 hours) however, walking for 22 hours just to complete full 100 strangely held no appeal.


    Imminent Catastrophe

      Dang, you got there about when I did, wish I'd known. I didn't see anyone who looks like your avatar though. Yeah, it was warm, especially that climb up Diamond Peak.
