The race itself was really fun because the little children would run along with me, usually grabbing my hand as they ran. The course was kind of tough with lots of hills and very dusty dirt roads and trails. Again we were lucky because there was a good breeze and the temperature was not too hot.
I felt good even at the high altitude, likely due to the time spent at much higher altitude in New Mexico and Colorado the week before. I was still just under 7 hours, which is way too long. I need to get busy training to increase my speed.
Here are just a few of the folks I met along the way!
