Mtn running is definitely not for me. I found myself pretty bored and frustrated with the feeling of it. It was like a combo of what I don't like about running and walking combined into one race. I did as much as possible to win without exerting much energy. This was mostly true but the last mile or so Ethan was on my tail and he was clearly much better at downhills so I wound up really taxing my body coming down the ski slope. My legs were pretty jelly by the end.
I'm glad I ran it. Now I know that mtn running's not for me. Time to move on.
