Flattest half in Franconia Notch, started quick with Matt, and just tried to run smooth downhill. Coming back up the hills had teeth. Felt crushed on the hill from 10-10.5, and just struggled to survive.
Right arm started shaking (cold+dehydrated?) Walked a few of the aid stations late to get more Gatorade and water down.
First woman passed me back late, I kind of resigned myself to be Mr Irrelevant, especially with the hills in the last mile. Some older lady volunteer yelled at me about how I was just gonna let her beat me and on the dirt around to the back of the lodge, she fell apart and I kinda ripped past for 10th overall.
