Ran the Rattler 50k. Weather was a little chilly to start, but warmed up nicely. Really great day for me. Ran the first loop with guy from Denver and we chit chatted away. Ran second loop with almost an even split just listening to music. Felt strong the whole time, no energy dips. Felt consistent. Way better mentally and physically than my last few long runs. Makes me feel like I am on track. Ate lots of snickers and drank coke. Trail was half technical and half runnable, good mixture of single track. Well marked.
