Quick report- felt ok first 70 miles of race- not great, not bad. Pretty even with few highs and lows. I had come to terms with having just a mediocre race, edging in the top 10. Split at 55 miles indicated 19:45 finishing time, well behind my 18 hr goal. Started feeling better miles 70-80, then really came alive at 80 and felt great the last 20 miles. Moved from 7th place up to 3rd in 10 miles, then held off some late charges to stay on the podium, despite going off course and going swimming in a lake twice (literally- long story). Hard to describe how good I felt the last 20 miles. Sure makes racing fun. In the end, a good run on a great, beautiful course with lots of nice people. And training buddy Jason finished his first hundred, too, in a very respectable 21:19. Full report... eventually. But I've run 100 miles and slept 0 hours in the past 40 hours, so I think I'm heading for some shut eye.
