Good job to keep going. Sounds tough.

Great training for those times in a race when you fall behind on nutrition and hydration. Hopefully it will help you recognize the early signals. Terrific run! Do you know the distance/elevation?

No idea on the elevation, but it's around 60 km.

Says the woman who ran 80 km on the weekend.

There were aid stations with ice and peanut butter sandwiches. That makes it easier.

You know I was thinking something similar at one point on the run. Races are almost easier than the training because there's aid stations with food/water at regular intervals, in training you're carrying all of it on your back.

and races are always FUN and exciting

.. Training is .... not.... especially when solo

Agreed! There are people around you, you can exchange a few words and laughs with other runners and aid station volunteers, and you're often on unfamiliar trails looking at new scenery. At this race, they even offered beer and margaritas at a few aid stations! (Also dill pickles, FB - I thought of you.) When you finish your run, complete strangers cheer, take your photo, hand you some trinket and steer you toward the pub. Much better than getting back to your car and trying to change out of your stinky clothes without offending anyone in a public area.

That's why you deserved the "Wow!" above.

Maybe I'm weird, but I really like the training part. Well, the outdoor part anyway. My 4 legged training partners enjoy it too. Looking forward to getting back to it some time.

Even so, that was a pretty epic solo effort, Tim.
