Official report on my green shorts running blog. Summary- a beautiful, exceedingly runnable (yet still very rocky/rooty) trail race across the spine of the Iron Mountains of Virginia. Very well-run, well-marked race. 29 miles with a surprising 7500 ft climbing and 7500 ft descending (take that, Logan Peak!), all of it between 2000-4000 ft. I took 1st place by 40 minutes, beating the course record by over an hour, as aided by my gorgeous crew (Marci). Very enjoyable day.
Weekly total of 95 miles with over 15000 ft climbing. Good stuff.
