Run up the mountain race. Had no expectation except maybe be under 40 mins and try to stay ahead of Ed since he is leading the All terrain Series. Started out easy and Ed pulled ahead of me so just tailed him for about .5 mile then he seemed to slow a bit and I just stayed in same uncomfortable zone. I found some peace in this zone and had some real mental game of not to walk which I won! I was trying to stay in the in-between of my stride and not the future or past and that seemed to work best. Kara mentioned that it seems to get easier after a few milers so that gave me hope as well. I am 50/50 on if I do this type of race again.
