Altitude for sure. I remember going for a run in Park City under similar conditions (sh!tty United Airlines!) and couldn't figure out why I felt so gassed. I then out two and two together and realized that of course it was harder at 2,100+ m. I think you were even higher than that, no?

Started at 2400 went up to 2850. Energy sapping on the inclines.

Thanks Dee. Ended up 4/29 in M40-49 so not awful and just 3 mins out of podium. Regardless it sucked. You ultra people are crazy.
